2023 Cannonball Run


Recommended Posts

Lucky you to see them!

I LOVE the Motorcycle Cannonball! Saw them at a stop a few years ago in WV.  Favorites are the sidecars and 4 cyl. Hendersons. Riders will sometimes take time to chat with you and take photos at designated stops. Following them on Facebook every day.    https://motorcyclecannonball.com/

Interesting that, as a driver, you're on your own. They all have a support crew, but can't get help from them during the race. 

From the rules: https://motorcyclecannonball.com/apply/#:~:text=Generally%2C any motorcycle manufactured in,replica machines are allowed!!

During a Stage, a competing motorcycle must not receive service or assistance from anyone associated with any Event Team including, but not limited to, support vehicles, family members, and friends.   4. Support vehicles must follow Support Crew Instructions.   5. On most days, Support Crew instructions take Support Vehicles directly to the next overnight city by a route mostly different from that followed by competing motorcycles.  On these days, where portions of the route are the same, a support vehicle must not travel near its competing motorcycle.   6. On several days, Support Vehicles follow a major portion of the motorcycles’ route.  On these days, support vehicles must not be in the field of competing motorcycles during the day’s run; therefore, on these days, it is recommended that support vehicles depart at least 30 minutes after to the official start of the Stage. (Support crews will be notified daily on wgich time to leave   7. If a Team's support vehicle is observed violating Support Crew Instructions (such as moving in the field of competing motorcycles when instructed not to, or traveling near its competing motorcycle) the rider or Team will receive a penalty of 50 Points for the first occurrence, 250 Points for the second occurrence, and disqualification for the third occurrence.   8. If a support vehicle is designated the official support vehicle for more than one Team, each of the Teams will receive the penalties assessed because of that support vehicle.
