We've teamed up with Lakeshore Auto Sales in Eastport and will put 5 gallons of gas in a 2004 Kia Optima, then drive it across Northern Michigan until it runs out of gas.

Your job is to guess, to the tenth of a mile, how far you think we'll make it. You have to have your guess submitted by 11:59pm on 8/9/2017.

Here is the route that Jimmy will take on the initial journey with only 5 gallons in the tank if you want to follow along. The first ride will be Thursday, August 10th starting at 8am! The grand prize ridealong will be Tuesday, August 22nd at 10am.

Enter below and take your guess, the three closest guesses will do a grand prize ride along with Jimmy and one lucky finalist will win the car!
