From Lamborghinis to Audis, all kinds of drivers enjoy the drive on the Dragon. The Recharge Rally brings together car enthusiasts from all over to take a trip through multiple states.

"Recharge Rally is basically a group of car enthusiasts that get together and we go throughout the states," organizers said. "We're going through the tail end of the Dragon to get some nice, twisty curves in to really test our cars out and just have fun."

The group always starts out their fun with what's important: safety.
