On Sept 23 - Oct 6 2018The Route 66 Motor Tour
Will Be Off And Running...
This will be the 5th year of an annual event - Joliet Illinois to Kingman Arizona.
The team involved with this event are some of the finest Route 66 folks known. We will be taking you on a wonderful tour of Route 66 in 14 days. Many fun places and points of interest to see along the way.
We'll drive around 200 miles a day... Some a little longer... Some shorter. We will not be driving all of route 66 from Illinois to California... As some of the "mother road" is no longer out there..... But we will drive as much of what's left of route 66 as possible with time allowed.
We Believe This Will Be A Great Event For Many Years To Come
Special thanks to the towns and their volunteers for being a part of the Route 66 Tour and thank you for joining us... Get em' waxed and gassed up... Let's ride...
