We are filming an episode of Roadkill, and you can come along! It’s called Roadkill Takes America We’re travelling from Auburn Hills, Michigan, to Ft. Worth, Texas, on August 16-21. Fans are encouraged to come see us at any of our stops along the way, or to follow along with us on the road. At the big stops we will have several of the Roadkill project cars on display.
We’ve mapped out the trip and planned many cool stops that are totally free for you, but you’re on your own for food, hotels, gas stops, and all that junk. We’re not doing drivers meetings or any of that kind of hand-holding. And never forget this is Roadkill, so stuff may change. Stick with Roadkill.com and the Roadkill Facebook and Twitter feeds during the week to keep in touch during the week.
That said, here’s the plan. We will plug in specific times for each day as soon as we get those smaller details ironed out.
See us at the Roadkill Nights 1/8-mile flashlight drags in the parking lot of the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan. We’ll also have a band, Dodge thrill rides, freebies, and more.
