ABOUT THE RALLY

Summer Road Trip Meets Great American Pastime

A Hardball Rally is the ultimate ballpark-to-ballpark driving experience. In between stops at some of North America’s most storied and picturesque ballparks, organizers have put together a world-class itinerary of spirited driving, checkpoint challenges, and VIP hospitality—to create a road rally of epic proportions.

Only the most interesting travel routes, the finest hotels, the best ballpark venues, and the smartest team challenges make the cut for a Hardball Rally. Lasting friendships, and fade-proof memories are the twin hallmarks of every event.

As a reason for supercar owners to gather for a long weekend of driving fun and adventure, the Hardball Rally is like an invitation to watch the World Series from an owner’s luxury suite… where the experience is state-of-the-art, and every aspect of the hospitality presentation has been carefully crafted to exceed expectations—leaving guests with a feeling of complete elation. This is the same standard that Hardball Rally teams experience on tour.

Put on your rally cap, and let’s play ball! Epic Rally Tours has teamed with Pacific Baseball Ventures to deliver the very best in sports and travel entertainment. You’ll not only drive some of North America’s most wild and scenic byways, compete in some seriously madcap checkpoint challenges, stay at the finest hotels, and eat the best meals—but, also enjoy VIP level hospitality at nightly ballgames.

Registration is limited to (60) teams. The all-inclusive entry fee covers meals, hotels, secured parking, ballpark hospitality, and special-event costs for activities like track days, closed-course hill climbs, exotic drag racing, and private tours. See our Event Info and FAQ pages for complete details.
