Fireball Run races to completion in Bangor

Eight day road rally crosses finish line at Hollywood Casino racetrack

BANGOR - Car shows are a popular summer pastime in Maine, and this weekend Bangor hosted a show unlike any other. Fierce Ferraris, muscular Mustangs, lovely Lamborghinis, cruising Corvettes and dashing DeLoreans zoomed into the Queen city, the finish line for the 2012 Fireball Run adventure rally on Saturday afternoon, turning heads on every street they traveled.

"That was amazing. I had thoughts in my head how it would be, but to spend that many days with the same people traveling across the United States, we got to see amazing things that a lot of people wouldn't get to see and do in a race situation," explained "Timber Tina" Scheer of the Bangor Riverdrivers.

Fired up for Fireball Run

Maine team competes in 8 day road race to recover missing children

BANGOR - The Fireball Run is officially underway and rolling. Forty teams took off on this eight day, 2,500-mile adventure rally last weekend in Ohio and they'll come to a screeching halt in Bangor, which is the finish line of the event, on Saturday, Sept. 29. But this outing is so much more than a road race - it's a race to recover America's missing children.
