Gumball 3000 entrants at Palm Beach Int. Raceway – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Gumballers who began in Los Angeles earlier this week have made it to the near end of their cross country journey in Florida, though not without some snafus along the way. Autoblog friend and freelance auto journalist Myles Kornblatt was on hand to capture the cars in all their bug-encrusted glory as they made their way from Orlando to Palm Beach Int. Raceway for one of the few track stops on the rally. After this they'll be headed for Miami and the finish line, after which we expect a finishing party to take place that would make Bacchus blush. Check out the high-res gallery below courtesy of Myles, which include action shots of the entrants on-track.

      So I'm sure all of you whining about this event will be happy to see what the photographer missed later on at the racetrack.

      The DB9 convertible boiled it's brake fluid and tried to mate with a wall.

        There will be a larger amount of loose women at the finishing event I assume.

        I like how she's carrying a camera in an effort to pretend she is not just there to fellate some rich guy. And yes, I am jealous. Of the guy, not her.

      This was an interesting event, the police closed down the roads at the start and finish points of each leg of the Gumball 3000 rally. In between the closed roads and track time the participants were supposed to not speed and I wouldn't, especially if the police know you are coming ;)

      I saw the event take off in Santa Monica, CA and there seem to be A LOT of cars missing? From the blogs and tweets, it sounds like many people had their cars impounded. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any of the pictures of Gretchen Rossi's Brabus being towed away. Now, that would be entertaining!

      For my money, I would rather do the "One Lap of America" although I wish that this event used at least one track that isn't on the east coast.

      Gumball didn't have very good update thing happening over at their official site. I guess that's what happens when you rally in the US and thus keep updates slow or vague to keep law enforcement guessing. "Official" blogs don't count, Max.

      All of that said probably explains why Autoblog updates have been slow or simply a lacking. I saw nothing in the way of info when and where I could see them arriving in Dallas anywhere on the interweb and hoped Autoblog would shed some light. Not a-blog's fault, I just had my hopes up, that's all.
