About this event

The 2024 Ron Dunlop Memorial Charity Cruise

The object of this event is to enjoy driving sweeping, beautiful, challenging, paved back roads at legal speeds while raising money for one of our favorite charities. There is no need for advanced math, and there are no riddles, compasses, maps or gimmicks. We will run rain or shine on May 18, 2024.

This is an SCCA Regional "Trek" format cruise event sponsored by the Into the Night Rally Team. It's a non-competitive, untimed driving event.  You can run by yourself or with as many passengers as you have working seat belts in your vehicle.

The "Trek" format is a "follow-the-leader" type cruise event.  There will be a lead car, and we'll all basically just stay in queue behind them.  Just follow the car in front of you and enjoy the roads.  We will hand out a brief, written course description at the Start to help you stay with the route if you decide to stop or whatever.  You can stop anywhere you like for any reason: a break, sightseeing, photos, etc.

Regarding photos, this event will go through the heart of the southern California wildflower area. With the rains we've been having, it should be a superbloom and should still be going strong on rally day.  We have found an especially scenic spot on course in this area, and we will have a professional photographer there to get some hi-res pictures of you and your car surrounded by the wildflowers.  We'll then send each of you your photos after the event!

This event has been designed to be extremely EV friendly.  There are charging stations near both Start and Finish.

Please register online here at MotorsportsReg. Registration is $30 per car. All net proceeds (over $20 per car) will be donated to the Loma Linda University Medical Center, the group that took such good care of Ron. (NOTE: If the "register now" button doesn't work, please reload this page and try again.)

You may still register in person at the Start. (Sorry, but we will not be able to accept credit cards at Registration. Please use the MSR website to pay by credit card.)  

Registration opens at 10 AM, but feel free to come earlier.  Dink's Deli makes their bagels on-site daily and they are mighty good.  There's also a Starbuck's and a Jamba Juice literally next door.  Come early for some socializing, tall tales and tire-kicking.  Finish will be at the Black Bear Diner in Palmdale.

This driving portion of this event is about 2 hours in duration and covers about 90 miles of our favorite roads. Cruisemaster is Paul McGaffey.
