This will put a new sparkle in our speed runs! Just received a press release for a car rally event called "The Great American Run" which modeled along the lines of the historic Cannonball Road Ralleys of the 1970's.
Basically 400 vehicles will be leaving from these four cities: Miami, FL; Atlanta, GA; Washington D.C. and New York City, NY. (100 from each city) and racing to Las Vegas and then into Los Angeles.
More information is online here.
