Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 1, 2011
Producers of the Fireball Run Adventurally announce CHEVROLET MOTOR COMPANY, as the official title sponsor for 2011 national automotive series. Competitors take part in a live action, eight day, and rolling motion picture. While competing in series of challenges embracing points of interest, road side America, as well as geographical location, teams participate in a massive recovery effort for missing and exploited children. The public is welcome to meet teams beginning Saturday September 24th in Melbourne, Florida. The adventure begins Sunday September 25th at 10am as Mayor Good area leaders wave the green flag starting teams on a 2500 mile adventure across America. Other public appearances are Jacksonville, FL, Charleston SC, Peachtree City GA, Knoxville TN, Clarksville TN, Anniston AL, and Gulf Port MS.
The Fireball Run’s cause-related effort called, the Race to Recover America’s Missing Children, is the largest active recovery effort for missing and exploited children in the country. Every team is assigned a missing child from their home region along with thousands of posters to distribute along the route. A decal featuring the child is affixed to the vehicle, creating a rolling milk carton. Since 2007 the effort has assisted in the recovery of 36 missing children. "All of us take this effort very seriously," says Fireball Run Announcer and legedary radio personality Ron Seggi, "It's fun, it's a competition, but its also about compassion."
“This is our best cast of characters yet,” said J Sanchez, the Executive Producer. “The Fireball Run is a challenging 2500 mile interactive game; America is the game board. The teams are simply pawns in our game.” Notable registered to compete in the rally are NASCAR legend Geoff Bodine, Space Shuttle Astronaut Winston Scott, Co-Founder Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, Scott Newitt, and nearly 50 other teams.

The 2011 rally themed “Southern Excursion” sets out to be the most cultural, scenic and diverse experience so far. Nearly 50 teams will adventure over 2,500 miles in 8 days, driving everything from Camaro’s to Corvettes, Lamborghini’s to Land Rover’s, even the Time Car from Back to the Future II and the police interceptor from the Andy Griffith Show. Along the way they must solve clues and complete challenges in an attempt to earn points, in addition to various motorsport challenges. Also making a rare appearance is Chevrolets new police cruiser, driven by Fireball Run’s Safety Coordinator, retired Albuquerque Police Chief Sam Baca.
The Fireball Run Adventurally, sponsored by Barrett-Jackson Auctions LLC, LuxuryLifestyle.com, O’Donnell Corp, and RedBird Printing, and Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka is a national automotive event and production headquartered at the NBC UNIVERSAL Studios in Orlando Florida. The safe yet mentally challenging rally is welcomed by area law enforcement in each host destination.
The 2011 Chevrolet Fireball Run Adventurally starts September 23rd on Florida’s Space Coast and concludes October 1st in the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The event encourages the public to come out, get autographs, and show their support. The production is filmed and available on DVD.
