“The challenges mirrored the original event giving points for driving the usual distance of 144 miles, giving product safety or technology information about their vehicle, taking a picture of their vehicle in front of a food truck, body of water, auto museum, with a lobster and more,” according to NEMPA writer Lisa Brock.
