The name Cannonball Run is owned by Brock Yates. Since he started the race, he owns the name. I also don't own any characters in this story, excluding my own.
Title: Cannonball Run International
Summary: Forty-eight teams will get the chance of a lifetime to race around the world for a one hundred million dollar cash prize. But they must avoid law enforcement and a army of terrorists first.
Author's Note: This is a reboot of the Cannonball Run World Tour series, that was started by Charles Xavier and has stories written by different authors. I just wanted to reboot the series and pave the way for other authors to write a future edition of the new Cannonball Run International series. Plus incase I've got writer's block on my other stories while waiting for Cannonball Run 7 to be finished and posted. So enjoy...
I'm also going to dedicate this story to Leslie Nielson, as I was unable to dedicate a chapter of Cannonball Run 6 to him.
Prologue: Trouble ain't got nothing on us!
Scene opens with horror writer Garth Marenghi, he is sitting on his desk with a digital 3D high definition projector next to him. He looks up to the camera and the viewiing audience in the movie theater.
"Hello and welcome movie goers of the world. I'm Garth Marenghi, visionary and horror writer. I've been asked to show you your featured presentation, so please if you're in a 3D presentation of this movie, put on your 3D glasses. If not then oh well..." he gets up to start up the projector. "A very quick history lesson for you all. The Cannonball Run World Tour series of films started out as a theatrical production, but had to settle with straight to DVD after the third and first of the World Tour series. This movie is of course a reboot to that series, and it is the first of hopefully many more Cannonball Run International series films. So without further adieu... Here is Cannonball Run International."
New York City, New York
President Harris left the United Nations building in New York City. He just got done attending a important diplomatic conference with the entire United Nations. Where the Secretary-General explained his plan for an attempt at world peace. A street race around the world, and when asked how cars or any other wheeled vehicles are going to cross the oceans. The S-G told them that all of the vehicles will be outfitted with the ability to transform into a airplane, boat or a submarine. Though the idea was pretty funny, nobody laughed and instead applauded the leader of the United Nations for this absurd but intriging idea.
"Mr. President..." a assistant to the Secretary-General said. "The head of the International Cannonball Run Council, has requested that you sign the document making the International Cannonball Run official."
"Oh yes, please tell Mr. Yates that he can come to the White House for the official signing. As I have a request to go over with him?"
"Yes Mr. President. I'll tell him right away."
A couple of days later the founder of the Cannonball Run, Brock Yates had already met with President Harris. They made an agreement to hold the starting line in a select American city, and they chose Honolulu, Hawaii. Now he gets to go on U62's number one rated talk show to give some details about the Cannonball Run and what it will mean for the entire world.
A stagehand knocks on the green room door. "You're on Mr. Yates."
"Thank you." and Brock left the green room.
On a strech of desert highway, a black with a Mockingjay pin design in gold Toyota Corolla FX16, sat on the side of the road. Katniss Everdeen looked at her wrist watch, a special wrist watch made for her, with infamous "unholy" creation between a mockingbird and a genetically engineered bird. The Mockingjay is considered a symbol of rebellion in Katniss's home dimension of Panem, a dimension ruled by the Capitol and it's evil president, President Snow. Her teammates sat in the car with the air conditioning turned on full blast. Peeta Mellark is sketching another one of his memories of the shortly lived 74th Hunger Games, fellow tribute Rue is humming to herself in her sleep, Gale Hawthorne is looking for a good radio station to listen to, but can't find one in the middle of the desert of Arizona. While the mentor of both Katniss and Peeta, Haymitch Abernathy is trying to quit drinking cold turkey, no success as of yet, as he's currently drinking a bottle of moonshine he managed to smuggle with him onto the Jackrabbit, their Cannonball Run entry.
"Hey Catnip, where are they? They're late!" Gale asked Katniss. She just shrugged and replied.
"I don't know Gale! They'll be here!" She then noticed the sea green Lamborghini Murcielago, called the Attrazione in the horizon. When it came to a stop next to the Jackrabbit, Professional wrestler "Sexy" Amanda Kaufmman rolls down the driver's side window.
"Finally!" Katniss said.
"Sorry traffic is a bitch." Amanda said. "You ready for this? You ain't going to cry like a little baby if you lose to us, will you?"
"Bring it on!" Katniss opened the driver's side door and shooed Gale to the front passenger, which sent Peeta to the back, sitting next to Rue who is in between the drunken Hunger Games victor and her fellow tribute. Then Katniss pulls out a driver's license and flashes it to Amanda.
"Where did you get that little girl?" Amanda asked.
"Courtesy of the Banzai Institute. Now let's race."
Elsewhere in the desert, band Bon Jovi begins playing as Amanda and Katniss get ready to start their little race.

"Great we have hovercrafts behind us!" Gale says while looking in the rearview mirror. Katniss just changes from third to fourth gear and slams the gas pedal to the floor, as the hovercrafts take aim and fire, but miss the two racing cars and take out the squad cars. Though the police officers inside the cars are alright. They're just a little shaken up.

Romulus Thread, a head peacekeeper and was put in charge by President Snow, stood in the lead hover craft. Looking over the pilots' shoulders as they flew the hovercraft.
"Your orders sir?" the main pilot asked.
"We're to capture that Toyota Corolla, then we're to take them back to Panem and make an example out of the, like rest of the traitorous tributes."
"What about the Lamborghini?"
"Capture them too. Maybe we can make them into Avoxes." Thread grinned. "Fire a warning shot across their nose."
The Attrazione pulls ahead of the Jackrabbit, just as Thread's hovercraft fires laser shots at both vehicles.
"Are they supposed to capture us or kill us?" Rue asked.
"Careful you idiot! I said across their nose, not up it!" Thread yelled at the gunner.
The gunner, who is cross eyed, turns to apologize to Thread.
"Sorry sir. I am a little cross eyed." he said.
"I can see that... Keep firing!"

Elsewhere a black 1965 Chrysler Imperial drove along the road, sitting in the front passenger's seat, was journalist and owner of the Daily Sentinel, Britt Reid aka the Green Hornet. Driving is his faithful sidekick and mechanic Kato.
"This first ever international Cannonball Run is going to be amazing Kato!" Britt said, both were dressed in their sidekick and Green Hornet costumes for the duration of the Cannonball Run.
"I'm sure it will be." Kato replied. Then he noticed the Attrazione, Jackrabbit and the hovercrafts in the rearview mirror. 'What the...?"
Just then the Attrazione and Jackrabbit sped past the Black Beauty. As did the hovercrafts.
"Looks those street racers are in trouble Kato." Britt said. "You know what to do."
"On it..." Kato armed the front bumber missles, aimed them at Thread's hovercraft, and fired all eight of them. The missles hit their target head on and sent it straight for the road.

"Mother(car horn)er!" Thread shouted. His team and himself abandoned the wrecked hovercraft, as on Piestawa Peak, Bon Jovi wraps up their song. They were faced with Kato and Green Hornet. "Get the hell out of the way!"
"You were after those racers, weren't you?" Britt said. "The Green Hornet and his sidekick can't allow street racers getting hurt, that will only ruin their chances of continuing to break the law, and we endorse law breakers."
Britt and Kato charge in and both beat up the Peacekeepers, Britt handed Thread the Green Hornet business card before climibing back into the Black Beauty and driving off.
"I'll admit, though you still lost the race, you really held on there." Amanda said as the Jackrabbit and Attrazione stopped at a gas station to refuel. "You've got some skills on the road, and your racing jumpsuit, who made it?"
Amanda was indicating the black and gold jumpsuit with Katniss' siganture Mockingjay on the left breast of the suit.
"Thanks, and it was my stylist for the Hunger Games, Cinna that made it for me. He was able to escape through the dimensional portal that the Banzai incidentally opened." Katniss replied. "And sorry about those Peacekeeper hovercrafts. They were meant to capture us and take us back, but you got involved too."
"All roadblocks in the Cannonball." Lara Croft said. "So don't worry about it. I'm sure there will be security that will keep them off our backs. Tell me more about Panem, and these Hunger Games."
Katniss sighed, this was something she didn't want to talk about. But she was no longer in Panem, but instead the Land of the Free. So she started her story, as the Black Beauty shown up and both men stopped to hear Katniss's story.
"Hey don't worry about those Peacekeepers" Britt said. "We took care of their leader. That will put a damper into whatever they were planning."
"The Green Hornet..." Bayonetta said while laying on the hood of the Attrazione, sucking on a cherry flavored lolipop. Bayonetta is the only one of the team who wears a leather black cat suit that is made entirely of her hair, of course you can't tell, because of her magic makes the suit look like black leather. Bayonetta is a Umbra Witch, and is skilled in the dark arts. "I should've figured you would enter the Cannonball Run. If causing chaos in Los Angeles wasn't bad enough."
"Bayonetta... your reputation as a Umbra Witch and knowing everything in the criminal underworld preceeds you..." Britt said. "I am entering the Cannonball Run. As I want to leave my mark on the international criminal underworld. So we'll be seeing you. Let's get going Kato... Kato?"
"That retaliation and speeding wasted most of our fuel." Kato said. "Well at least speeding down the highway did, I don't know about the missiles. So I have to refuel the Black Beauty."
"Okay... Well since we have time, whos up for a game of strip poker?" Britt asked but received a kick to his groin by Rue instead.
"Nice one little girl..." Bayonetta said as she put another sucker into her mouth.
"Welcome to Town Talk..." host George Newman said. "I'm your host George Newman, and today we have a special show for you all. We're talking about the upcoming Cannonball Run, and here is our first guest Brock Yates."
Brock Yates is welcomed with applause, he's offered a seat next to George's, which he sits down.
"So tell me about your reaction to the Secretary-General's decision?"
"Well it was a total surprise, but he was a fan of the Cannonball Run films, which were based on the actual events of the '80 and '81 Cannonballs. So that was a surprise for me. But now that the decision has been made, and I've been head of the Cannonball Run International Council, I guess I'll accept my new career with pride and honor."
"Well it's time to bring out our next guest. He's been saying all over the internet that he and his church will protest the Cannonball Run. But before we bring that guy out. Let's unveil my teams entry for the Cannonball Run."
Stanly Spadowski of the number children's show on U62, and Kuni of Wheel of Fish, were sitting on a Ford Crown Victoria taxi cab. Which is sitting on a revolving stage, to show the car from every angle.
"This is named the Super Taxi. We got it down at Earl's Used Car Lot before he was arrested for clubbing that baby seal in his most recent commercial, plus we had to buy quickly as the police was going to auction all of his cars off in a police auction. So we were able to buy when the police arrested him. Anywho, Kuni, Stan and I spent about three weeks repairing it and modifying it, as it was a piece of junk when we got it. No wonder why the police gave it to us for ten dollars. Well say hi guys."
"HI!" Stan and Kuni said in unison.
"Now on to our next guest you may love him, you may hate him. Okay so you hate with a burning vengeance. But we have the First Admendmant in this country and he can say anything he wants and do anything wants, as long it's not illegal. He's been protesting military funerals for about eight years, ever since our country went to war in Iraq in 2003. The one and only... Please give him nothing but jeers... Here he is Reverend Ted Philips!"
The elderly pastor walks out to boos, thrown beer bottles and even a thrown anvil, which Ted ducks to avoid. Ted takes a seat on the other side of George, the opposite side of Brock.
"This country is headed for Hell! You all have accepted homosexuality as a way of life! God will punish you for your sins! Just like he's punishing this country's soldiers for this grave sin of accepting faggots into our culture. Repent of your ways now! So you may be saved!"
"Thanks for coming on Reverend." George said.
"Ah blow it out of your ass!" Ted then looks over at Brock. "You heretic! You're definitely going to Hell, and God will not forgive you, even if you ask for God's forgivness. It's too late for you!"
"I take it you're against the Cannonball Run?" Brock asked.
"I am against your sinful Cannonball Run!" Ted replied. "Anybody who accepts raping the highways of God is a sinner and must be punished and damned to Hell!"
"Well..." George said. "You're against the Cannonball Run and this wonderful country. Why do you believe that we must be damned to Hell and punished for our sins? Didn't Jesus say himself that he will forgive and forget any sin you've committed?"
"He did say that, but that is not what he meant. If you've accepted him as your Lord and Savior. Jesus will forgive your sins, but if you accept fags into your lifestyle, he will never forgive you. The same goes for street racing road rapists!"
"Well that's all the time we..." George was cut off by Ted, who tackled him to the floor.
"I'm not done you sinful heretic mother..."
The screen shows a drawing with George being electricuted by wires, as Kuni and Stan watch in horror, below the drawing is the words:
WE'RE EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. PLEASE STAND BY...
When the show returns, Ted was being held back by security, as he struggled to get free and strangle the life out of George. Brock takes the chair he was sitting in and broke it over Ted's head. Knocking the senile old coot unconscious. Then the ending credits roll, as George thanks Brock for coming and tells Ted off for breaking his nose.
Danny Bonaduce turned off the TV, as he was watching what went on Town Talk and shook his head in response.
"Hey Danny!" Gary Busey said as he entered the warehouse with grocery bags in his arms. "We can use some help over here!"
Danny got up and helped Gary, Tonya Harding, Brad Loekle and Leif Garret with the snacks they were going to need for the Cannonball Run. They took the bags over to a Lamborghini LM002 named the Bulldog. Their entry vehicle for the Cannonball.
"Hey that preacher guy from the Westboro Baptist Church on Town Talk." Danny said. "Looks like he is going to try to stop the Cannonball."
"No way..." Brad said. "He's going to have to go around the world to keep up with us. The budget for these trips will be expensive and not to mention that he's been banned from various countries for his anti-Americanism. Now shut up and help us pack!"
Joseph McClure, nephew of J.J. McClure, walks into his auto garage that he co-owns with Victor Prinsi's nephew Dominic McClure. When he enters, he finds a 1955 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith fully restored and modified with a new engine.
"Hey Dom! Is the Baron ready?" Joseph said. "Dom?"
Dominic comes running out wearing the Captain Chaos mask and cape.
"DUN! DUN! DUN!" Chaos said. "The Baron is ready Citizen Joseph! Come! We've got a race our uncles wanted us to enter immediately!"
Joseph groaned, this was going to be a long race...
President Croiolanus Snow stood near the make shift office window of the warehouse his Peacekeepers are using as a make shift base in Hawaii. He and his peacekeepers escaped the Banzai Instiute in order to pursue the "traitors" of the Capitol, the Hunger Games tributes and that so called cousin of the girl tribute of District 12. Snow know they will pay for this outrage, they were sucked through a portal inside the arena. Then Ms. Everdeen had a portal opened to bring that Mr. Hawthorne with her. Foruntately a portal opened in City Circle of the Capitol. When his soldiers and himself were ready. After he ordered a bombing run to deal with the Districts, he was told thousands died, and the only Districts that were spared was Districts 1 and 2.
"Those traitors are in for a surprise when they return home and find their families dead. That is if Thread, my most loyal and ruthless Head Peacekeeper doesn't bring them back first. I may go easy on the traitors and turn them into Avoxes to serve their District tributes next Hunger Games. That is if there is anybody still alive in the bombed Districts." Snow said to himself. He looks out to the floor below, where the remaining Career Tributes, Cato and Clove, are selecting a weapon. The tributes they managed to capture and bring with them were being chained to a makeshift wall, for their execution at the hands of their fellow tributes. The boy from District 11 was resisting but was eventually chained to his brick wall. Cato chooses a one handed sword and Clove throwing knives. Cato goes first and walks up to Thresh.
"Well I'm going to take great pleasure watching you die." Cato received spit into his eye for his comment. Cato takes his sword and stabs Thresh multiple times, Thresh's blood spraying on the pyschotic teenager. Clove laughed, as did Snow. Then it was Clove's turn, who merely threw a knife into the chest of the boy from District 10. Once again great pleasure was taken from those who support the Capitol.
"I've got a better idea..." Snow then opened the window and yelled out. "Cato! Clove! I'll declare you BOTH winners of the 74th Hunger Games if you kill the traitors out in the field during the Cannonball Run, and kill them BEFORE Head Peacekeeper Thread!"
"Victors Village here we come!" Clove said as she looked into a mirror. She threw her last knife behind her and into the throat of the boy of District 3.
"Looks like you have a deal Mr. President!" Cato said with a wicked grin.
"Oh this should be interesting Snow..." came a demonic like voice. A humanoid dragon with metal pieces replacing body parts entered the warehouse, with a group of black robed humanoids of various races and genders. "I, Deathwing, shall be entertained by your mortals attempts at killing five mortals!"
"What are you saying?" Snow shouted from above. "You're saying these two can't handle it!"
"Exactly... I shall send my Twilight's Hammer with you." Deathwing said pointing to the robed figures behind him. "Surely many heads are better than two... Wouldn't you agree Cho'Gall?"
Cho'gall, a two headed ogre, steps forward. "I agree completely Lord Deathwing. (Agree! Agree! Agree!)"
Cho'gall send at least a dozen cultists with Cato and Clove." Deathwing ordered. "I shall prepare for this race around this world."
"Yes my Lord."
Inside Snow's office, he turned to President Alma Coins, who stood in the shadows behind him. "Well now you know what I'm going to be dealing with... So I don't see why you would want to take over my job."
"Because..." Coins said. "I'm going to say that one final Hunger Games is going to be using Capitol children, but then I say that I changed my mind and keep the Hunger Games going... This time with chidren from all thirteen Districts and the Capitol."
Snow chuckled to himself. "That is why I wanted you to take over. That is why I had you for the rebellion. So you eventually remove me from power and show Panem just how evil the Capitol can be..."
Snow, Coins and Deathwing aren't the only ones going after the Cannonballers. Drug lord of the United States, Jimmy "Dr. Feelgood" DeMarco was going after the Cannonballers as well. With his drug runner, Danny Cruger, and computer hacker Richard Nelson aka Mr. X, DeMarco thinks he can at least slow the racers progress, so he canh steal the money.
"So you know what you need to do Cruger?" DeMarco asked. "Stall them... Do whatever you can do to slow them down, while Richard over here stays here in Hawaii and hacks the Cannonball Run's computer systems. We'll be both taking separate vehicles to ensure that we stall them in a massive scale."
"I will do my best Boss." Cruger said. "Ricky, can you hack their computers and learn the location of the prize money real quick?"
"Sorry Cruger." Richard said. "But I don't know their security systems and I have to test them though trial and error. But I will have their systems down once I find a layout of the place."
"Good... Let's get started."
Back at the warehouse that housed Snow and his group, Chin Ho Kelly and his cousin Kono Kalakaua were called by the Cannonball Run security team when the dead bodies of the tributes were discovered by NYPD Detective Mac Taylor, head of the Cannonball Run security.
"Max and Detective both agree those teenagers are murdered execution style. Though neither of them have seen this style of execution ever." Chin Ho told Kono.
Detective Danny Williams and Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett, Chin and Kono's Five-0 coworkers arrive to assess the damage of the Cannonball Run pre-race party location.
"What do we have Chin?" Steve asked.
"Bodies of several teenagers executed by knives and a one handed sword. Max says it could be a gladius."
Danny's attention perked up. "A gladius? You mean like those short swords that Gladiators and Roman soldiers used? How did someone get their hands on one of those? It's not like they robbed a natural history museum or something."
"I can answer that..." Dr. Buckaroo Banzai said, climbing out of a '70 Toyota Celica painted all white with a red spot, called the Bonsai. "It seems that a while ago, I discovered a alternate universe in a post apocalyptic future called Panem. Some of it's occupants came through. But then an entire army, that one of the described as the army of the Capitol, Panem's capitol city, came through soon after. The team of Panem citizens, I ordered to hide in the basement labs of the Institute, while I stayed above ground and watched several teenagers being brought through. Two of those teens weren't held in chains like the others were. I couldn't help but overhear the executions. May I see the bodies to see if they were from Panem?"
Steve held up the police tape and Buckaroo stepped under it. While his teammates Sydney "New Jersey" Zweibel and Perfect Tommy guarded the car. Mac tried to stop Buckaroo from going any further inside.
"Lieutenant Commander, may I ask why you're letting Dr. Banzai into my crime scene?" Mac said.
"He said he wanted to identify the victims as coming from a alternate world of our own. So I let him through."
"Don't worry Detective..." Buckaroo said. "I know to never contaminate the crime scene..."
Buckaroo knelt in front of each of the bodies still chained to the walls. He sorrowly bowed his head out of respect when he looked at each one. "Yes this is all of them, except for the boy and girl escorting the black kid and kid with the bad leg. Katniss and her team won't like this... But I'll have to tell them when they get here."
"Here?" Mac asked.
"Yeah, I made sure they passed their driving tests and receive their dirver's license before I told them they can enter the Cannonball. If these kids are dead, then that also means the Cannonballers are in serious dnager. The Capitol will learn of the other Cannonball teams and will stop at nothing to make an example out of them as well."
"Well that is quite a pickle for you and the other Cannonballers doctor." Mac said as he took out his cell phone and dialed a number. "Luckily I know some people who can provide extra security."
All parties present was unaware of Richard's experimental recon drone, which was recoring everything, including aduio.
"Looks like we have some competition Boss." Richard told DeMarco. "A group of people just killed a small group of teenagers, before packing up and leaving. All before the Cannonball Run security force showed up and discovered the bodies."
"What sick (car horn) would kill innocent kids?" DeMarco asked from the table that he sat with Cruger. "Unless they were pedophiles or teenagers as well."
"Well it was a execution style of medieval proportions. But the thing that freaks me out is that one of the people involved is a humanoid dragon. Don't give me any weird looks. I'm being honest, you can even see the footage right here."
Cruger and DeMarco got up and looked at the laptop monitor. Sure enough the drone got a look at Deathwing and his cult.
"Well I'll be damned..." DeMarco said. "We have better odds at stalling the Cannonballers and stealing the prize money if we team up with them."
"How can we find them?" Cruger asked.
"Leave that to me Boss." Richard said as he typed away on his laptop.
Danny and Steve arrived back at Five-0 headquarters in Honolulu. There was a 2011 Ford Taurus police car sitting in the parking lot. Steve got out and walked up to it.
"Is this yours?" Danny asked getting out of the car.
"This is ours Danny." Steve said. "The governor has asked me to enter the Cannonball Run. So I'm asking you to be my partner for the race."
Danny groaned and wiped his face with his hands. "Let me get this straight... You want me to join you in a illegal street race that goes all over the world, and ruin my reputation as a good cop? Are you out of your mind?"
"Come on Danny. Every racer is given a pardon of all of their activties during the race, excluding murder, robbery, sports fixing and sexual assault. So we're in the clear as far as speeding is concerned."
"Alright... Alright... I'll join you." Danny said getting into the driver's seat. "But Rachel better not get wind of this. She'll use it against me to keep Grace all to herself."
"Stop worrying Danny! I can handle Rachel for you! And where are you going?"
"To test drive the Five-O and get the snacks we're going to need for the trip. Do you like the name Five-O? Because we're a part of..."
"Good name, now go and get that food and drink." Steve gives Danny a thumbs up. "Becaure we're going to need it for the trip through North America."
Mac oversaw the entire cleanup and gathering of evidence by Five-0. He looked at the area where the tributes were once hanging, as crews destroyed the brick walls and the fire department washed away the blood with fire hoses. His cellphone rang and he answered it.
"Mr. X..." Mac Taylor said. "I take it you were able to hire them?"
"Yes..." said the old man named Mr. X, a mysterious man who is Mac's superior in the security force. "They'll be there in time for the pre-race party. I hope the warehouse will be cleaned up and ready in time?"
"You do understand that it is a crime scene, and the..."
"I know it is the location where several teenagers were murdered." a real tear falls down Mr. X's cheeks at the mention of the tributes. "It is a tragedy and I hope you bring the killers to justice during the Cannonball, but we need that warehouse that we reserved at the harbor. We both understand, right?"
"There is another warehouse right next door sir? Nobody's using that one."
"Well okay... That works as a replacement. But please clean up the other warehouse to store the vehicles." Mr. X said. "Is that clear? I'm sure you've gathered all of the evidence you need for a conviction in court."
"We have and it will be ready for vehicle storage soon. See you soon Mr. X." Mac hangs up and puts his phone back into his pocket. "At least Mr. X shows emotion at times..."
Author's Comment: So the reboot to the Cannonball Run has begun. Next chapter will have the rest of the teams featured. Plus Katniss and her team learns of their fellow tributes's fate, and Katniss vows to make Snow and the Peacekeepers pay for their crimes. As well as Mac and Five-0.
