3rd Annual Memorial Car Rally Honoring Cory Iverson
We invite you to participate in our Memorial Car Rally on October 20, 2018 to honor fallen firefighter, Cory Iverson. Cory Iverson lost his life on December 14, 2017 while battling the Thomas Fire in Fillmore, California. Proceeds of this rally will benefit two charities; Iverson Foundation for Active Awareness and The Murphy Auto Museum. We encourage you to socialize this rally to your family and friends, especially to the community of first responders.
The rally will take its participants on a beautiful drive through Ventura County’s backcountry. Rally participants will end their day at a festive after rally party at The Murphy Auto Museum. Ashley Iverson will be present at the after party in Oxnard. The rally is open to the first 50 cars, classics and modern day automobiles. Learn More & Register »
