"This is a historic event worthy of being captured on film," Route 2 Media's Michael Julian said. "We will provide nightly video recaps, tour blogs and photo galleries. Chad Reynolds of Bangshift.com will be riding with us so between the three of us we will be able to provide great coverage. Andy Brizio and Gary Meadors are two of hot rodding's founding fathers and have always been ardent promoters of driving, not just showing hot rods. The Rodfather/Goodguys Road Tour is tailor made for filming. We're just as excited as the hot rodders to hit the road."
