Press Release Summary: Cannonball Run was a great movie, but Burt Reynolds will not be competing in the real thing. Today, the Cannonball Run is known as One Lap of America, and CopMagnet.com will Webcast the 2008 One Lap of America Live.
Press Release Body: CopMagnet.com will not only take part in 2008 One Lap of America, but will Webcast the event for nine days. Viewers will have the ability to watch, listen, and even “chat” online with the drivers during the event. There is no doubt that the Internet and Auto Racing are both growing quickly in 2008, this is why CopMagnet.com will produce a Live Webcast of the 2008 One Lap of America. CopMagnet.com is inviting the world to go along for the ride this year as a “virtual” passenger in a 505 horsepower, 2008 Corvette Z06 (CopMagnet II). Viewers will also be able to track the team with a live GPS feed.

Co-Driver - Steve Gerber, Captain, US Army
Steve is a senior Captain and commander of Bravo Company of the Warrior Transition Battalion, or WTB. WTB’s were set up at Army posts across the country as a response to inefficiencies that occurred at Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital. Steve’s job in this unit is to manage, transition (back into the Army if they can, or into civilian life), and most importantly to inspire our soldiers who have been mentally and physically wounded in the war.
Steve says: “How often do you get to participate in a truly once in a lifetime event? What am I going to tell my grandchildren I did with this one life? This is too easy a choice … give me Competition over Comfort any day of the week.”
About the Car:
CopMagnet II - 2008 Corvette Z06 with 505 HP. Estimated top speed of 198mph. Named “CopMagnet II” because it is a Corvette covered in race stickers and it draws a great deal of attention, as well as being the second of two such cars belonging to YourNew.com, Inc.
