Hoondog Events announces the Legend Lives Tour 2012.  For those wishing to channel their inner “Steve McQueen”, this event is one not to miss! Ford Mustang ‘Bullitt’ and Dodge Charger owners are invited to participate in a week-long run chasing each other across America’s Mother Road, Route 66.  Starting in Chicago on May 26, the tour will wind its way across the US tracing the historic Route, culminating at the Friends of Steve McQueen show in Chino Hills, California on June 2. The Friends of Steve McQueen show is hosted by the late actor’s son, Chad, annually honoring one of Steve’s movies.  For 2012, the show’s theme is ‘Bullitt’, the 1968 movie made famous by the chase between a 1968 highland green Mustang 390 Fastback and a 1968 black Dodge Charger.   Both the Legend Lives Tour and the Friends of Steve McQueen show benefit the Boys Republic, a private non-profit, non-sectarian school for at risk youth.  For more information, to register for the event, or to simply provide a tax deductible donation to Boys Republic, please visit the Hoondog Events website at:
