The 12th annual Coker Tire Challenge will begin as scheduled on Thursday, Sept. 14, with registration, vehicle technical inspection, Rally School and reception in the Coker Tire Museum. The rally will begin Friday morning.
The weather for the event is expected to be wonderful. The Chattanooga area should get an inch or two or rain and some moderately high winds Monday and Tuesday, but the forecast for Thursday through Sunday is highs in the low 80s and only a 10 percent chance of rain each day.
There are a few small changes from past years, including registration in the basement of Coker Tire, tech inspection on Fort Street behind Coker Tire (instead of on 14th Street to the side of Coker Tire) and support trailer parking is in a new location off of 28th Street. Participants who have signed up already have been given a Schedule of Events with all of this information, including a map to the new support trailer parking area.
