The vision of this rally is to demonstrate that NGVs can travel across the nation and that there are adequate refueling stations to make this trip a reality.
Organized by Pat Riley, General Manager, Gibson County Tennessee Utility District, the Rally will start in Long Beach, CA and end in Washington D.C. The rally will feature 13 scheduled media stops in the following cities: Long Beach, CA; Mesa, AZ; Albuquerque, NM; Oklahoma City, OK; Little Rock, AR; Memphis, TN; Trenton, TN; Dickson, TN; Sevierville, TN; Rock Hill, SC; Greenville, NC; Richmond, VA; and Washington, DC.
APGA and NGVAmerica are encouraging all to participate in this rally by joining with a vehicle, attending one or more media stops, or becoming a sponsor to support the increased visibility of natural gas as an important and viable alternative fuel for vehicles. Sponsorship opportunities are available for $500, which includes the company name and logo on a line banner or pop up banner that will be prominently displayed on or near the stage for the media to see during the ceremonies or interviews. These banners will be placed at every media stop along the rally.
