Pierre is excited to be part of the 11th season of Fireball Run. The
Amazon Prime TV series is the story of 40 driving teams in a legendary competition across the country in search of obscure historical facts, un-discovered
places, and extraordinary experiences. Get a glimpse of the show at
The teams will travel through Pierre on Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30. While in town, they will experience a dozen area attractions and help out our local economy. Each day the teams earn points for accomplishing missions. Bonus points are awarded for spending money in the towns they visit. We love that idea and know our downtown retailers will too!
But it’s not just about the glory of winning. Fireball Run helps a local children’s charity in each town. In addition, the show has teamed up with the Children’s Rescue Network and has become America’s largest active recovery effort for missing kids. Each team is responsible for distributing posters of a missing child from their local area. To date, the show has helped in the recovery of 44 missing children.
We welcome Pierre, Fort Pierre and the surrounding communities to get involved in one or more of the following ways:

Our Pierre Rockers team is assisting the Children’s Rescue Network by distributing flyers of Sharon Baldeagle who has been missing from Eagle Butte since 1984. The team will be given 1000 posters to distribute on their 2000 mile journey.
