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.

BANGOR - The Fireball Run, an eight-day, 15-city road rally, will be rolling into Bangor this September, and over the weekend the show's producers decided to test out the route for themselves.

"The producers pre-drive the production route to ensure it's safe for everyone and that it can be played at a safe speed limit," explained J. Sanchez, executive producer of Fireball Run. "It's the equivalent to a life-size game of trivial pursuit."

Forty teams made up of business owners, celebrities and elected officials will be leaving Independence, Ohio Sept. 21. From there, the teams will travel in exotic cars and complete tasks and challenges along the way until they reach the finish line on Sept. 29.
