Getting Out Of The Lawn Chairs
The driving events were new additions to the Americruise program this year. Set up mostly for fun, the Autocross sponsored by Air Ride Technologies and the Go & Whoa sponsored by ABS Power Brakes Inc. gave rodders an opportunity to really see what both their car and they could do when they didn't have to worry about getting a ticket or other motorists getting in the way when their foot decided to get a little heavy.

The contestants for the Rod & Custom Rod of the Year and Custom of the Year also competed in these competitions as part of the selection process for the big titles, and the more they ran, the more fun each of the owners had. Look for even more fun on the track at next year's event!
