Beetleball: Long Beach to Las Vegas

Remember the movie Cannonball Run (back when Burt Reynolds had a full head of hair)?  It was bad ass cars and mad men drivers on an all out road race across America’s highway system.  Well, Beetleball has the same concept, only the bad ass cars have been replaced with air cooled Volkswagens.  Good news for the drivers, it’s hard to get a Volkswagen to go fast enough to get thrown in jail.  The Beetleball Long Beach to Las Vegas Endurance Rally was run October 3, 2009.  Nobody was imprisoned but a few VW motors died trying.  You can read live coverage (now on Memorex) here at Jalopnik
