Don't let the name fool you, because this is not Gumball 3000's brother in the United States, it's something different altogether. In fact the name is about the only thing the two rallies share.

The American Gumball Rally organizes fun weekend road rally events in each state to promote businesses, tourism and community. Unlike other rallies, these ones are short and sweet and stretch between two to three days at most. They are weekends away with cars as the main theme.

The enjoyment of driving in the countryside or down a dragstrip or even on a closed track for a day is what the American Gumball Rally is all about. Enjoy driving, having a lot of fun and staying safe.

The really cool thing about these types of rallies is that they are open to anykind of vehicle, even motorcycles. The main goal is not speeding but a sort of checkpoint system that many other rallies have, but what sets this rally apart even more is that you can actually win a throphy for having major mechanical failures, best graphics and for running a car that has a really bad fuel consumption. Rather crazy, but sounds like a lot of fun.

In 2016 there are a few rallies available and below is a list of rallies under the American Gumball Rally calendar that we recommend.
