Each year, the fastest, loudest, and some might even say craziest enthusiasts come together for the annual Bullrun Rally. This year, running amongst the pack of performance cars is a very different type of raw strength: a 2008 Ram 2500 Diesel. Navigated by Chris Morrow and his friends Blake & Doyle, the 2500 has been converted to run on biodiesel and outfitted with auxiliary tanks to meet the rigorous, long-distance demands of the cross-country trek.
While a behemoth like the 2500 might not seem like a natural fit for the 8-day, time-sensitive run, Morrow and his rig have a unique advantage thanks to the fuel-efficient set-up. According to Morrow, the 2500 can average about 1300 to 1500 miles between fuel-ups, making the race from NYC to Vegas a lot less daunting.
The rally officially kicked off on July 9th, and the guys are committed to documenting their exhilarating journey from start to finish. For a glimpse behind the scenes (and into the cab) of their homegrown operation, check out their blog: GreeningMan.org.
