(MAD) Sonic Cruise to Fredericksburg, VA - June 26th

RDY4WAR wrote:It's about time that the MAD Crew had a cruise through the backwoods of Virginia. On June 26th, that's exactly what we're going to do! Starting at AHP in Lorton and ending at Sonic Drive-in in Fredericksburg, the cruise will be approximately 2 hours and 80 miles long cutting through Manassas down to Remington and Culpepper and back around to Fredericksburg. This will be a great cruise to get out, relax, and enjoy the summer! Everyone is invited so bring your spouse, gf/bf, kids, dog, etc. With enough support, this cruise could become an annual event.


The cruise route is a approximately 80 miles long and should take about 2 hours to complete from start to finish. The cruise will start in Lorton, VA. We will line up along the street next American High Performance's shop at 8480 Terminal Rd, Lorton, VA and depart on the cruise at 11:00am. The cruise will follow VA-643 towards Manassas and turn onto hwy 28 South towards Culpepper. Just outside of Remington, we will turn off towards hwy 3 which will lead us down to the Sonic Drive-in at 5817 Plank Rd, Fredericksburg, VA. (See complete cruise directions below)

I'm working nights, so I can't make the full cruise, but if you give me a heads up, I can hook up towards the end and cruise to Sonic with you as I only live about 5 miles from there!


Pete, I hate to break it to you, but for some "PC" reason, they also employ males to skate to your table/car... It's just not the same

You should see about going down 29/15 just a bit further and taking Bradsford/Greens Corner Rd... That is Rt 666! Then it will be left on Rt 663 to 3. On Laura's cruise last year, I took them on that slight detour and it provides a nice opportunity to open up a bit, but beware as the road is not real smooth and can separate men from boys! Also you'll need good brakes as the end of the road comes up quick!

Alright guys, the cruise is the day after tomorrow. Sunday morning, when you arrive at AHP, pull around to the opposite end of the building and line up parallel to I-95 in front of the shop. This way we will already be lined up and when 11am rolls around, we can just hop in and head out.

Here is the address for AHP in Lorton, VA. Try to be there no later than 1045am so we are sure we have everyone. We don't want to leave anyone behind.

8480 Terminal Rd
Lorton, VA 22079

Follow the arrows on the map below on your way in.



Remember that there will be coffee and donuts provided at the shop prior to leaving for the cruise so come early if you want some. Let's make this a good cruise! Smile

I was supposed to meet a svtp forum member in Fredericksburg yest to pick up a rear and 2010 500 wheels. Traffic was terrible! Even worse on his end (coming from Newport news) I eneded up meeting him in Ashland. I hate VA, no accidents or cops just terrible donkey drivers...

The old rear is unpainted and has stock gears. It is easier to swap a rear yourself than try to install the gears into it. . . I heard it through the grape vine
