Sometime during the summer

Dallas -> Houston -> Austin -> San Antonio -> Corpus Christi

A real camera crew will be shooting the event and a DVD will be made. (Pending approval...)

Who's ready??

Should also note that this is a part of www.texascannonball.com and we expect several hundred cars to be in attendance.

so.... can someone explain to me exactly what a cannonball run is?? my impression of it is that you get a whole bunch of cars and basically drive as fast as you possibly can from one place to another?? If thats the case, you can count me out, thanks....

I doubt that it would be super fast idiotic driving like you see on the movies. Then again you never know. I know I'll be doing my normal cruise speed....about 5-10 over and maybe a little fun here and there.

a cannonball run is a gathering of like-minded individuals who enjoy driving their cars.

how fast you drive is up to you and the law. hahhaha

some people are going to be driving fast all the time. some people will be driving a little over. some people will be driving the limit. it's whatever you are comfortable with.

this is still in the infancy stages but i promise thise will have the feel of the real gumball because i really want as many people to do this as possible.

and yes, this will be a weekend event.

friday: dallas to houston with a party that night
saturday: houston to san antonio with a party that night
sunday: san antonio to corpus christi which will end with a state mazda meet.

Sweet. I'm not looking to over do it like some of the more exotic cars do on those cannonball runs but maybe a few just to set us apart more from the normal crowd on the street. Might have draw backs if some one is driving reckless though. Might assume since we are in the same group as the person getting caught that we are all idiots......what do you think?
