Here's the press release announcing the Mikey Childress, self described as "The Motorsports Machine".
Here's more useless stunt stuff going on in this economic depression, with washed up racers willing to suck it for tire companies like General Tires. General Tires, the same company paying off pit services in Mexico, the same company with all the reported flats at the Baja races. Goodbye real desert off-road races.
"Mikey Childress will represent Team General Tire in the 2009 Bullrun Rally. Kicking off July 10, 2009 in New York City, racers will take off on a seven-day automotive rally and cross-country party that ends July 17th in Austin, TX.
Some 100 celebrities and car-heads take part in the “luxury lifestyle” rally event. The remaining rally locations over the seven days remain a mystery but Bullrunners can expect to swing by some incredible cities on their way, with a party each night when they reach the day’s destination.
“The Bullrun is one of the most glamorous rally events, combining bona fide racers with celebrities and drivers from around the world,” said Dana Zamalloa, manager of public relations and communications, General Tire. “Mikey is an incredible racer and we know he’ll represent Team General Tire well at this event."”
