Default The MoVenture begins!

(Scroll down for MoVenture standings that I plan to update daily, plus more information on how to see what is going on with the MoVenture from your computer!)

Tonight, the MoVenture - a cross country rally race from Detroit to Colorado - kicked off at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills. Chrysler invited me to come out and meet the teams, as well as checking out the cars that they will be driving on their race across America.

First off, here is a look at the ten Mopar vehicles being raced across the country prior to the teams arriving:

MoVenture, Day 1:

The MoVenture has begun!
Tonight at the Walter P Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan, the ten lucky teams of two picked to compete in the cross country rally race known as the MoVenture came together for the first time – getting a chance to meet their competition as well as getting acquainted with the new Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, Fiat and Jeep vehicles in which they will spend the next week. Tonight, the teams got to check out their new Chrysler Group vehicle and enjoy a dinner with their opponents and a group of Mopar enthusiasts who came out to see them off. Tomorrow, the ten teams will set out from the Detroit area for an unknown destination as the rally race that will take them from the Motor City to the Mile High Nationals in Denver over the next week – with 7 days packed full of driving their new Mopar vehicles across the country as they compete in a variety of challenges and tasks along the way. The teams have no idea what awaits them along the way but they know that whoever reaches the Mile High Nationals first (after completing all of the mandatory challenges) will receive $5,000 in Mopar parts and accessories!

Click the image to open in full size.

There are two teams representing each of the five major Chrysler Group brands, with a color assigned to each team. The teams will race across the country, logging over 1,900 miles in a week and while getting to the Mile High Nationals is as fast as possible, the MoVenture is more about finding the fastest route from point a to point b and completing the challenges the fastest – but speeders will be punished by having points removed and their speeds will be tracked via GPS locators. Along the way, the teams will be strongly encouraged to chronicle their MoVenture via social media and Mopar has even put up a special page on their website where you can track the progress of the team. Click here to have a look at the competitors, including the current point totals.


The Ram brand is represented by a 1500 Outdoorsman Crew Cab by the orange team and a 1500 Sport Crew Cab by the white team. The orange team is comprised of Chris and Jefferson, of Stillwater Oklahoma and the white team is formed by Chris and Sean of Troy, Michigan.

The Dodge brand is represented by a pair of Chargers, one packing the Pentastar V6 for the green team and one powered by the 5.7L Hemi for the red team. The green team is formed by husband and wife Susan and Craig of Burlington Kentucky while the red team is formed by Gil and Mike from Honolulu Hawaii.

The Chrysler brand is represented by a new 200 Limited powered by the Pentastar V6 for the blue team and the new Hemi powered 300C by the purple team. The blue team piloting the Chrysler 200 is formed by Keith and Derek of Colerain, Ohio and the purple team Ben and Chris – brothers who live in Phoenix and Detroit, respectively.

The Jeep brand is represented by new Grand Cherokee for the yellow team and the Wrangler Unlimited for the black team. The yellow team is comprised of Lisa and Garrett of Warren, Vermont and the black team is made up of Mandy and Jane of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Last but certainly not least is the Fiat brand, which is represented by the grey team and the brown team in a pair of Fiat 500 Sport models. The grey team is formed by Berry and Jennifer of Addison, Texas and the broken team features Wendy and Eric, from Phoenix Arizona.

Stay tuned to DodgeForum.com for continuing coverage from the MoVenture, as we keeps close tabs on the Charger and Ram models that are representing the Dodge and Ram brand that we at DodgeForum love so much!

Good to see Kentucky represented since I couldn't go. I would have been happy in any of those rides, but would prefer a Hemi Charger or Ram.

A little more information about the MoVenture and following it to route for your favorite Dodge or Ram team (or one of the others, if you choose).

when you go to the MoVenture site (by clicking here), along the top of the page there are four tabs - follow along, about moventure, game rules, and teams.

In Teams, you can view the ten teams by vehicle brand and below their information it lists how many points they have. For instance, right now the Ram Outdoorsman team of Chris and Jefferson have 1,090 points - putting them in first place. If you pass over their picture on the team page, you can click on it and inside there, it links to to that team's social media outlets (again, with tabs along the top). If you scroll down, along the left side of their window, you will see their results in each and every possible challenge - along with the date that the challenge was available.

Next, if you click the follow along tab on the MoVenture website, along the left side of the page there is a long list of the available challenges with the dates in grey. if you click on a challenge, a description of what the teams had to do appears on the upper left of the panel...above the youtube and other social media links. This page also has an overview of information recently posted on the social networks. Also, next to "follow along" towards the top of the page, there is a button that says Track Us. All of the vehicles in the MoVenture are tagged with GPS locators and the track us option gives you a chance to see where in the US the teams are at that moment. For instance, as im looking right now, the teams appear to all be in Forest County, Wisconsin.

Again, click here if you want to see the list of what the MoVenture teams have done so far and if you want to see the current scores of the teams, click here!

For you lazy DFers out there, as of this morning, these are the current standings (Ive put Dodge and Ram vehicles in red for easy reference):

Orange Team - Ram Outdoorsman - 1090 points
Purple Team - 300C - 990 points
Green Team - Charger V6 - 950
Red Team - Charger R/T - 900

Black Team - Wrangler - 820
Yellow Team - Grand Cherokee - 790
Brown Team - Fiat 500 - 700
Blue Team - Chrysler 200 - 690
White Team - Ram Sport - 640
Grey Team - Fiat 500 - 310
