Well, I have new goal in life, to run the Gumball Rally. For those who are LA Times subscribers, check out the bottom of the front page today, there is an article on it. People shouldn't be allowed to have that much fun. I can't believe the cars entered in it and the speeds they were traveling. It sounds just like the movie Cannonball Run.

Check it out or go to their website <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.gumball3000.com>www.gumball3000.com</A>

I can only lead you to water, I cannot force you to drink it.

So thats what that was !
I was on my way to Vegas last friday and saw the F50 and a chase car (some right hand drive car) getting gas at the outlets. I left first but ran into them at Baker doing a drivers change on the side of the road. When I got to Vegas they had a special parking area at Mandalay Bay (I think it was there) I was wondering what the heck Gumball Rally was ?!

There's also a jackass episode you can find on kazaa where they do the gumball rally in europe. You see more driving and it's a lot funnier than that mischive 3000 video.

Jr. I have been a fan of this since I was a kid. The folks try to proove the theaory that you can go fast responsibly. I remember an article back about 1980 where some guys ran the thing in a Dino Ferrari(beautiful car) They said they were doing about 180 through Az. when they started hitting jack rabbits.
They said it sounded like hitting coconuts with a baseball bat. I will never forget that description.Their goal was to cross in less than 30 hours and I think they made it. It was a great article. It would definitely be something for a lifetime.

If your gonna go, go BIG

That was a great story in the LA times. Makes me wish I had the car and money to do it.

Tara Dakides (pro womens snowboarder) was on Fox Sports 54321 last night talking about how she was going to run that from SF to Vegas in a car that Jesse James was building.
