Press Release 3-3-2014
The Ralph Rapid Transit Cruiz-In on the world famous Berlin Turnpike has come to an end. This marks the end of an era, and the end of a decade of Burger King Cruise Nights. We have been notified by Burger King that they can no longer allow our Saturday night Cruiz-In's, effective immediately. The management at Burger King embraced the Cruiz-In over the past 10 years. They enjoy the cars and appreciate the substantial boost in business that the Cruiz-In patrons generated over these past 10 years. Unfortunately, the surrounding business owners and property managers do not welcome car enthusiasts and do not appreciate the increase in business that the Cruiz-In patrons helped to generate for them. The Owners of Burger King tried to negotiate with the property land owner and the local surrounding businesses to come to an agreement to keep the Cruiz-In going. Sadly, The property owner threatened not to renew Burger King's land lease if they continue to host our Cruiz-In, so Burger King had no choice. I would like to thank Sharleen, Gary and all of my friends that have helped me run the Cruiz-In throughout the years- You helped make it one of the best Cruiz-Ins in the Northeast. Thank you for all your hard work, giving up your weekends from April to November for the past ten years, so that others could come out and enjoy a fun and relaxing evening on the world famous Pike. 

Over these past ten years, we have collected donations from our "Cruisers" for Burger King's annual fund-raising drive for the Jimmy Fund. Also, since September of 2008, Ralphs Rapid Transit Cruiz-Ins have partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of CT and has collected donations for Make-A-Wish through a monthly Cruiz-In fundraiser. In that time, I am proud to say that we were able to collect $12,975.81 for Make-A-Wish and over $5,000.00 for the Jimmy Fund. As of today, we have no plans to relocate the Cruiz-In for the 2014 season, but may entertain a new location in the upcoming years.

Thank you to Burger King owners, managers and staff. And to all of the great people I have met over these past 10 years, Thanks for all of the great memories. I'll see you all this summer at our Mopar In Motion Shows, SuperCar Races Events and Ralphs Rapid Transit Events.
