The Bandit Run is a re-enactment of the road travelled in the 1977 film Smokey and the Bandit.

Understand[edit]

The 1977 film Smokey and the Bandit tells the story of running a semi-trailer full of Coors beer from Texarkana in Texas (the furthest east it could be legally bought) to Atlanta, Georgia, with a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am as a blocking vehicle.

The film remains as a classic, and a contemporary depiction of the late golden age of trucking, American muscle cars, and citizen-band radio, as well as the rebellious spirit of the 1970s.
