Rental Car Rally

What is Rental Car Rally?

Rental Car Rally is Halloween on Wheels

RCR is an overnight, backroads-mostly driving competition between crazily-festooned teams competing for cash prizes and a golden gas pump. There are usually between 25 and 60 teams per event. Except this one time there were 73 teams and some dudes dressed as clowns crashed their minivan on a bridge in Canada. So. Anyway. It's ballerhouse tits-out crazytown.

You Win by Hitting the Checkpoints and Looking Awesome

RCR isn't technically a race. The team with the lowest odometer score and best costumes wins. Each team must hit several checkpoints along the route, including sites like abandoned airfields, giant decommissioned howitzers, airplane graveyards, and other absurdly awesome locations.

Expect Good Times and Possible Incarceration

Trucks, covered in dog fur! Grown men, dressed like Rambo! Grown women, dressed like trailer trash! Border patrol agents who don't like pot cookies, sheriffs who'll accuse you of pedophilia, casino owners unamused by costumed gamblers, and bar managers who will kindly referee an impromptu Greco-Roman wrestling match. True stories. When you rally with RCR, you meet some amazing people who are bored with conventional entertainment and weary of respecting the Interstate Highway System.
