Back to the Bricks Promo Tour starts Friday with trip from Davison to Mount Pleasant

MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) (6/8/2018) - The 2018 Back to the Bricks Promo Tour is under way with a trip from Davison this morning to Mount Pleasant this evening -- and plenty of stops in between.

Nearly 300 classic car lovers hit the road for the Mighty Mac and Back event. Some participants signed up for the tour Friday morning.

The tour started at St. John's Parish Hall in Davison before heading west to Owosso for a stop at Young Chevrolet Cadillac. From there, the tour was heading north to Ithaca and will spend the night in Mount Pleasant.

The tour lasts six days with stops all over Michigan and a ride across the Mackinac Bridge. Stops are planned in Gaylord, Petoskey, St. Ignace and Birch Run.

The event has grown steadily over the years. With 290 cars taking part and two people riding in most of the cars, nearly 600 people are along for the ride.

The promo tour is all part of the effort to get people revved up for the big Back to the Bricks event in Flint later this summer.
