KNOXVILLE (press release)—Rally North America will be staging 80 cars from 31 states and three Canadian provinces on the streets of Knoxville, Tenn. (starting line and host city for CJ Pony Parts Smoky Mountain Rally) for the kick- off day of a three day, 1200 mile scavenger hunt which will conclude three days later in Savannah, GA.
Rally North America would like to thank Sarah Rowan, sales director of Visit Knoxville, who was as able to procure The Clinch Ave. Bridge for the morning of Tuesday July 14, 2015 from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. to act as our starting line and was extremely helpful in our search for accommodations in the Knoxville area.
Additionally, we would like to thank Mayor Burchett who has graciously agreed to act as the Grand Marshall and will be on hand to give the drivers their starting orders that morning.
The media and the public are welcome to attend the starting line. There are no charges to view the festivities. However, donations are welcome.
The automotive scavenger hunt is being held to raise funds for Hope For The Warriors. Since our inception in 2009 to date Rally North America has raised over $450,000 for our chosen charities.
