The relaxed nature of the countryside cruise offers a welcome break from the competition on the track and gives all of the competitors an opportunity to socialize and take in the beautiful winding back roads of Kentucky. The cruise also allows competitors to include the entire family in the event and show off the highway manners of their ride.

A digital scavenger hunt is always a favorite part of the countryside cruise for many participants. The digital scavenger hunt consists of a map and a list of check off items that must be photographed as the driver and the driver's ride-along photographer traverse the pre-planned route. LS Fest officials will award a $500 product certificate to the team with the most items photographed from the list during the event.
