Rules of the Dustball


The rules are simple, other than basic regulations as set forth in our Terms & Conditions. This is not just any rally, it's the Dustball Rally, the single largest organized gimmick-type rally in the nation. It has its own camera crews, photographers, volunteers, and staff -- all of this assembled for the sheer enjoyment of sharing the open road with friends and strangers during a multi-day mission.


The Highest possible award to attain is the Spirit of the Dustball "Willie Williams" Award. For more detailed information on this, please view our sections on Spirit and Previous Winners under the main menu.

Join us on this adventure, we will show you how to make a lifetime of memories through only a few days of driving. We will introduce you to dozens of other people that share this common interest, and you may become friends and connect with. We will take you along an unforgettable route to an incomparable destination for the ultimate US roadtrip experience. This will be five great days that you will never forget...until next time...


The Dustball Rally is NOT a race. It is a non-timed street-legal rally.



Expand Your Brand

Sponsors are always needed every year to make Dustball rally events a reality. Thanks to the regular support of our many sponsors, we are able to continue year after year. In return for sponsorships, Dustball Rally provides advertising of sponsoring businesss' in many different forms. The most obvious and noticeable method of advertising we offer is by affixing those businesss' logos to our participant vehicles during the annual Dustball Rally. This show of gratitude for sponsorship is a proven method of advertising, as it is impossible to not notice a fully stickered Dustball Rally vehicle.
