FIREBALL RUN began September 27th 2007 with 78 teams rolling from Orlando to Beverly Hills. The "no rules" inaugural event was organized as a proof in concept to test if a board game could be played, in real time, on the open road, using America as its game board. Many lessons were learned that year. First: the concept of "no rules" was replaced with "plenty of rules". Second: never, never, never place 78 cars on a game board- ever. Sadly, little video exists of the inaugural event, and so another lesson was learned; how to film a 3000 mile live production. Today FIREBALL RUN is limited to a safe 40 teams.
