Motor Tour 2012 Time!
Funk's Grove Midpoint Tour is rolling along the Mother Road!
June 8-10, 2012
Are you registered for the Motor Tour this year? It's our signature event - an annual trek along our Illinois portion of Route 66. We make stops along the way to see the sights and meet the folks that make Route 66 special. This year's Motor Tour extends from the Chain of Rocks Bridge to Elwood, IL. Don't miss this rare opportunity to cross this historic bridge!
If you're not yet registered to join us, it's not too late. Simply meet up with us at the Edwardsville Route 66 Festival on Friday, June 8 when we officially kick off the 2012 Motor Tour. You can also meet us Saturday morning at the Chain of Rocks Bridge and register bright an early on our first day of the tour.
Our Motor Tour is highlighted by the Hall of Fame banquet where each year we honor a new batch of Route 66 heroes to our Hall of Fame. This year's banquet, to be held on Saturday, June 9 at Lincoln College in Lincoln, IL, is sold out with folks eager to celebrate the achievements of the nominees.
