This isn’t a cannonball run. The last thing we want is people chopping the top off crappy old civics and then driving 120mph and crashing into a tree or a truck or falling off a cliff or something. So in order to make it competitive, and tons of fun, each team will earn points through challenges en route to a location.
The list of challenges will not be given until the day of the road rally, so teams will have to strategize on the fly. In addition, we reserve the right to award and deduct points on impulse or whim.
