That’s right folks, BANGshift’s own Chad and Daphne Reynolds will be cruising the country this week with some of the coolest hot rodders and parts manufacturers in the biz. We’ll be behind the wheel of one of Ridetech’s cool hot rods, and we can’t wait to start watching the mile markers go by in the lovely mid west. Oh, and besides an awesome road trip, we’re also going to be autocrossing the wheels off our machine each and every day. Oh and then there is the guided trip down the Bourbon Trail as well. Wait, what? Yeah, read on. This one is going to be awesome.



Here is all the info from the gang at FM3 Road Trip. Check it out.

The concept behind the FM3 Road Trip is to share the passion of getting in our cars and driving them – creating lifelong memories and friends along the way.  Throw in a little autocross action each day, some local tourist flavor, and a parking lot party and we’ve got something really cool.  Throw in some great product giveaways, and everybody gets really excited.  Make it a charity event to help someone in our industry in need, and we have something truly special!
In case you didn’t already know, this years charity support will go to Chad and Daphne Reynolds. Chad is the co-creator and proprietor of, an online media channel that is second-to-none in their coverage of all things automotive.  I’m sure many of you may advertise with Bangshift, or know Chad personally.  Late last year, Chad’s wife Daphne was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in adults – one that typically only effects children.  Once diagnosed, Daphne’s medical team quickly jumped on the problem and started aggressively treating the insidious disease.  The good news is that treatments are helping and Daphne is improving every day.  The bad news is that the costs of the treatments are far and away more than their medical coverage will pay.  Last year, through the generosity of our Road Trippers and sponsors, we raised $10,000 for the Be The Match Foundation in support of our good friend Todd Rumpke.  We hope to be just as generous for Daphne and Chad.
We have a lot of media coverage this year for the Road Trip – in addition to being live streamed daily on, we have editors and photographers from Super Chevy Magazine, Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords, Timeless Muscle and  And each day we award several gifts to Road Trippers, because you are some of the best brand ambassadors in the world.
Lastly and maybe most exciting, this year we have added a James Otto concert to the tour.  Award winning country music artist James Otto will join us on the tour as our Grand Marshall and will be performing an acoustic set on Friday evening at Ridetech.
On Wednesday night, April 26th, immediately following dinner at the Holiday Inn University Plaza in Bowling Green, we will host the Road Trip charity auction.
