He performed for the Bullrunners and showed up the next morning to see the drivers off. he expressed interest in participating in Bullrun in the future. In 2011, Vanilla Ice drove a custom Firebreather Supercar built by Classic Design Customs. The car is featured in the supernatural thriller, Jinn. We look forward to seeing Vanilla Ice join us for many Bullrun's to come.
