Fireball Run set to end in Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The Fireball Run is coming to South Mississippi. It's actually a car race that takes teams on what the promoters call "a wacky journey" across the country. The intent of the race is to bring awareness to America's missing children.

The race will begin in Melbourne, Florida on September 24th and end in Gulfport on October 1st, which is the first day of Cruisin the Coast.

Tourism officials see this as a great opportunity to help a worthy cause and promote South Mississippi.
