SANTA FE, NM. – The much-anticipated 10th season of the Fireball Run television series has premiered on Amazon Video.
Entire episodes of the 26-episode adventure-travel series took place in and near Starr Hill Vineyards in Curwensville. Season 10, titled Anniversary Edition, spotlights the great area history, sights and attractions.
Typically, Fireball Run is released 11 months after live production completion. However, a number of studio delays prevented producers from making the original September of 2017 premiere date.
“We sincerely regret the lengthy series delay. Unfortunately, there are circumstances, which we as producers do not control. I know so many great folks in the community have been anxiously waiting for their moment. Entertainment at times can be an unpredictable industry,” said J. Sanchez, Fireball Run’s creator and showrunner.
He continued, “That being said, I am proud to release our best season to date and grateful to Starr Hill Vineyards whom not only recruited the series to the area, but also served as an official sponsor of the series.”
Fireball Run is best described as a contest, history and travel show combined.
Filmed authentically in real-time, Fireball Run chronicles the 2,000-mile adventurous journey of 40 driving teams as they receive several clues, which if solved, lead to rare, historic or epic experiences within the destinations featured in the series.
Teams receive points for successfully locating and experiencing each location. No easy task, solving the clues often involves assistance from a strong support team of fans, family and friends.
In the case of number 73, IntergraOptics, Bazillion Astronaut Marcos Pontes not only had NASA’s assistance, all of Brazil interacted with him on Facebook.
Clearfield County’s own Starr Hill family participated in the competition. Ken Starr and son Kenn Starr, represented as team Starr.
How well did they score driving the company’s Dodge minivan against vehicles ranging from Ferraris and McLaurens to the Time Car from Back to the Future? You’re in luck if you have an Amazon Prime account.
The series is distributed by Amazon and bingeing is free for Prime members. Alternately, you can just go to Amazon to buy, download and keep the entire season.
However, it’s more than for entertainment. Since 2007, the series has leveraged its exposure to support Child Rescue Network, a 501-c3 charity.
Fireball Run is equally renowned for its Race To Recover America’s Missing Children. Each competing team is assigned a child missing from their local region and provided 2000 posters featuring the child to distribute along the 2,000-mile, 10-day journey.
The series has since aided in the successful recovery of 50 missing children.
