    2004 is the next, and to enter a cannonball, you need a pre-1979 car. There is no stop, so it's won every year by some team driving a winnebago.

    The problem with the race is, you can't make it across the country without getting pulled over. Things weren't like that in the 70s, when radar was brandy-new tech that was often fooled. Also, Police cars back then couldn't even hope to keep up with a car doing 130 mph (Minimum evasion speed).

    Now, they can get your ass on satellite - If they know of a cannonball. They won't stop until everyone is jailed. And with the new Patriot act, I wouldn't be surprised if they had the ability to torture you to find out who else is racing.

    If you couldn't tell, I just got pulled over by a cop on Rt84 for doing 75 in a 65, and got RAPED for $198.

    A Race on i-95? Are you sick ? The heaviest patrolled highway in the US ? I'd rather do a i-76 from Philadelphia to Denver or something.

    Or that highway from Pittsburgh to Idaho.. i-90 I think.
