2016 Cannonball Race Of The Century. Stage 5 Results.

cb1Wednesday’s ride was incredible for those who were roadworthy. Morning’s sunlight filtered through a slight mist and smokey mountain glens that made for the kind of moments to dream of.

Temps were cool, which also pleased the ancient engines.

The highlight of the day was the trip across the Wabash bridge which caused a few palpitations due to the antiquated condition of the warped and wobbly trestle.

A few cloud bursts followed the group and most arrived for the block party in Cape Girardeau with soggy butts and water logged socks, but none of that did anything to dampen spirits.

cb2It was 2014 when last we saw the locals and the reunion was a fun festival.

Oldies played over the loud speakers and the local car show gave folks a trip down memory lane.

Today riders will head to Springfield, Missouri for the evening stop.
