2004 LA - Miami
On June 04, 2004, the inaugural Bullrun rally set out from Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles to sunny Miami, Florida. The first ever Bullrun event attracted over 100 cars including Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, Porsches, a Chevy Avalanche, and even an L39 Aero Fighter Jet! Paris Hilton dropped the starting flag as the cars set off in a blaze of glory at 9:00am destined for Las Vegas, NV. Little did the drivers know what to expect from this year’s Bullrun rally! The rally visited racetracks such as the drag strip at Parumph Speedway in Nevada to Sebring International Raceway in Florida. Destination cities included: Las Vegas, Scottsdale, Santa Fe, Dallas, New Orleans, Tampa and finally Miami. The parties were crazy and the driving was insane. Along the way, the rally saw Bullrunner Jessie Rodriguez, a Las Vegas Businessman driving his brand new Lamborghini Murcielago, challenge Rocky Stewart; the CIO of Oracle to a race. Rocky’s vehicle of choice was an L39 Aero Fighter jet. Of course the jet won the race, but Jessie was as determined as ever to beat his rival. The 2004 rally saw Richard and Sue Rawlings take home the ‘Always First Award ‘for arriving first at nearly every checkpoint en route.
