What is the Legend Lives Tour?
Legend Lives Tour is a week long event that will provide an organized drive across Route 66, from Chicago to California, starting Memorial Day Weekend Saturday May 26 thru Friday June 1.
Legend Lives Tour is organized by HoonDog Events Inc.
Who is HoonDog? HoonDog is a Non-Profit corporation formed by the original Bullitt event organizers of the past decade. The charter is to provide a new basis for Bullitt events as charitable ventures to support Boys Republic...introducing Boys Republic as a Bullitt family focal charity.

What is Boys Republic?
Boys Republic is a private, non-profit non sectarian school for disadvantaged youth. This school has been in operation since 1907, and has successfully led at risk boys and girls to productive responsible adulthood. What is the connection with Bullitt? Steve McQueen, the basis and 'namesake' for our cars, was once himself a student at Boys Republic. The McQueen Family Foundation continue to support Boys Republic. Choosing Boys Republic as the Bullitt family charity pays respect to the McQueen legacy, but more importantly to a worthy cause supporting our youth. For more information on Boys Republic, please go to http://www.boysrepublic.org/
The Legend Lives Tour is partnering with The Friends of Steve McQueen (FosM) Show, where the LL Tour terminates in Chino Hills and ends with participation in the FoSM show. What is FoSM? FoSM is organized by Chad McQueen, the late actors son, and is an annual car show that pays homage to one of the late actors movies. For 2012, the FoSM theme is honoring the movie Bullitt. Both LL and FoSM are charitable events that support Boys Republic. The FoSM show has two main attributes. A friday night celebrity charity dinner on June 1, and the car show on Saturday June 2, both of which will be held on the campus of Boys Republic.
