Cannonball Run, big cost, but possibly big prizes.

Filed under: Racing — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 6:40 am

Did you ever watch the the Cannonball Run movies? Here’s a little background if you’re not familiar with the history of the Cannonball- the movies were based on an actual event Car and Driver editors Brock Yates and Steve Smith organized called the Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash to protest the newly instituted 55 mph speed limit among other tightening traffic laws. There were only four “official” Runs, but many have borrowed the name for their own races.

Cannonball Run World Events Ltd. has cooked up their own version of the infamous illegal run, but rather than invitation only, anyone can register for this Cannonball. The catch is you’ve got to be a high roller to play. Still got some lottery winnings left over, or maybe a check from a second mortgage burning a hole in your pocket? Read on to see what it’s all about. You can read Hot Rod Magazines complete article here.
