Drivers lined the streets of downtown Jefferson City this morning to take off on day four of Rally North America.
The five-day long road rally started in West Virginia on Monday. Drivers traveled through Ohio and Indiana before stopping in Jefferson City last night.
This year, participants raised over $100,000, which all goes to benefit The Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis.
"Everybody loves cars, and we love helping people, said David Patterson of Virginia. â??So it's the best of both worldsâ?¦ and it's interesting seeing all these amazing places across the US."
Each day's journey entails several checkpoints that drivers have to find by using clues. Think of it as an adult scavenger hunt. The first checkpoint in mid-Missouri? Tiptonâ??s famous 8-Ball water tower.
Organizers and drivers thought Jefferson City was a perfect stopping point.
â??Itâ??s a great little town,â?? said Rally North America CEO Scott Spielman. â??Itâ??s as American as you can get.â??
â??Everythingâ??s been great at this place,â?? said TJ Fry of Montana. â??We love Jefferson City! Come visit!â??
Today's journey ends in Dodge City, Kansas. The end of the rally ends tomorrow night in Pueblo, Colorado.
