What makes this a One of a Kind event?
It is both an Awareness Campaign and a Rolling Vehicle Show. Participants will have the opportunity to support the new Impact Curriculum called Foundations of Fatherhood, help launch Unique’s 2021 Roll-in Season while also having the opportunity to show off their ride and compete in 4 different competitions:
- Road Warrior – Here 4X4 trucks, rat rods, choppers, and military vehicles duke it out to see who the toughest kid on the block really is. (mid-stop)
- Bells & Whistles – Here awards are given to the most trick out ride. Everything from custom paint, to performance suspension, to jacked-up sound systems will be counted toward your credit. (mid-stop)
- Crack the Sky – Here vehicles will be judged to determine who has the best pipes. While loud is important, a low throaty tenor and the harmony when revved up is critical too. (mid-stop)
- Best in Show – Judged by a panel of professionals across the industry, the top motorcycle and top car will be determined. (Return location)
