Drive Clean 106:
One Lap of America
The One Lap of America, also known as the Cannonball Rally, was originally created by Brock Yates in the early 1970's. It was a flat out race from New York City to Redondo Beach, California in the fastest time possible (which, at the time, was 32 hours and 51 minutes). Since then, the rally has progressed to a slightly less insane race that is scored or "judged" from events that take place on various race tracks arcross the country. However, each race event is roughly 400 to 600 miles from the last one; which means drivers drive all night and race all day. Four-thousand miles, eight days, 10 states, 12 track events, and no sleep = One Lap of America.
In this episode, Matt Farah, Mike Musto (and mostly I) thought the One Lap race would be a great way to test detailing products to show how progressively "dirty" cars become during this type of torturous trip.
