And yes, it's exactly what it sounds like.
"RCR is a weekend-long, backroads-mostly driving competition between 100+ crazily festooned teams competing for thousands of dollars in cash and a golden gas pump," according to organizers.

Or in other words, it's what you're doing the weekend of June 18.
The event spans from LA to Tombstone, Ariz. The exact start and finish lines have yet to be revealed. Along the way, teams will have to hit certain checkpoints, including a real-life ghost town and a bar made of car parts.
In full disclosure, one of the rally's organizer works for our sister station WMAQ-TV in Chicago. And despite our best efforts, he is still refusing to reveal the other checkpoints.
Remember, this isn't a race. Races are dangerous and encourage speeding. Think of this as an automotive celebration of the absurd. The goal is to complete the journey via the shortest route possible while doing it in style. There'll be two winning teams, a grand champion and a style champion.
Tickets are $179, which covers one vehicle's entry and unlimited teammates. Plus you'll want to factor in other costs: fuel, food, hotel and possibly bail.
And despite the name, if you're not up for renting a car, you may use your own vehicle.
