Inspired by previous Road Rally races such as The CannonBall Run,
a modern incarnation of the cross-country rally has emerged. Since 2007, the Fireball Run
has taken place, with its 2000+ mile course varying from year to year. More than just a road race, the Fireball Run bills itself as an "Adventur-rally", relying more on cleverness than sheer speed. Organizer's compare it more to a "scavenger hunt", suggesting that a knowledge of history and local trivia are more valuable than driving skill. (in fact, racers are monitored so as not to be allowed to drive "unsafely.")
Among this year's 40 teams, there are not one, but THREE Deloreans
competing (one of which has been modified into a screen-accurate Time Machine.)
Also competing are the requisite Ambulance
, a host of exotic sports cars,
muscle cars, commercial utility vehicles
and maybe even a Batmobile.
This year's rally goes from Ohio to Maine, with the goal of raising money & awareness for missing children.
Best part of it is: it starts tonight! (err…this morning) Live coverage is promised here.
