After retiring the Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy dash, which famously terminated a bit above Pedro in Redondo Beach, Brock Yates launched the One Lap of America. Now, with renewed interest in point-to-point rallying due to the Gumball, the Bullrun, the Player's Run and the upcoming documentary about the 1983 US Express, which set a transcontinental record of 32 hours, 7 minutes, Yates is looking back to get in the game he invented. According to ForbesAutos, Yates may revive the Cannonball as early as this spring. Is that sound we hear Chuck Mallett sprinting to his garage? And will the Polizei take up the gauntlet Yates is about to throw down? Hang on, kids. It might get a bit bumpy.
