Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run

COPPELL, Texas — December 19, 2013 — Adventure Power®, a Universal Power Group, Inc. brand, has joined forces with TAM Communications’ American Iron Magazine and Team American Iron, a four-rider team that will compete in the third Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run. This is the third Motorcycle Cannonball coast-to-coast ride for vintage motorcycles. Adventure Power is pleased to be the title sponsor of the team that features two Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductees, Editor-in-Chief and founder of TAM Communications, Buzz Kanter, and author Cris Sommer Simmons. Kanter and Simmons are joined by Cris’ husband, rock icon Pat Simmons, co-founder, songwriter, guitarist and vocalist for the Doobie Brothers, and Paul Ousey, President of Oz Trucking and Rigging and a veteran of the previous two Motorcycle Cannonball events.   

The Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run will follow a southeast-to-northwest 4,100 mile transcontinental route starting in Daytona Beach, Florida, and ending 17 days later in Tacoma, Washington. More than 100 riders from around the world are expected to participate in the event, which is open to participants riding pre-1937 motorcycles. Riders will average upwards of 300 miles per day, spending more than eight hours each day on the road. The scenic route sticks mostly to America’s back roads and will include planned stops at a variety of motorcycle dealers, museums and other points of interest along the way. The full route and complete schedule of stops is available at

In addition to sponsoring Team American Iron, Adventure Power® will also provide batteries to all registered Motorcycle Cannonball riders. Extra batteries will also be available to riders in need along the way.
