#ChevySXSW 2011 Road Trip Challenge has started!

Here is my one-stop shop to track the 10 twenty eleven road trip teams as they drive from their respective home towns to Austin for SXSW this week.

What follows are links to the teams and their profiles, blogs, etc. The challenges and locations are secret this year, so the teams and the world will find out about them in real-time. Remember each Chevy is rigged with mobile wi-fi internet access to help them publish content and communicate from the road plus OnStar is on the ready to assist along the way. Good luck #ChevySXSW drivers!

Leave comments, send well-wishes, let the smack talk fly. Follow hashtag #ChevySXSW via twazzup or twitter search. Also follow the challenge judges with @sxswangels/judges/members. Here is the official introduction to the team captains on sxsw.com. You can follow team progress on this handy map app courtesy of OnStar. Each Chevy vehicle is also tweeting out messages via GPS triggered events with OnStar.

You can support the teams through an education charity this year via Adopt-a-classroom. The team's have more info on their blogs.

Disclaimer: I am a #ChevySXSW 2011 road trip challenge judge. I drove for Team NC with Jason Keath, Nicole D'Alonzo and Wayne Sutton in the first road trip last year. See all my SXSW exploits from last year. The photo above was somewhere along our trip through Louisiana where we found a really custom Chevy truck on the roadside. Pictured left to right is me, Niki and Jason.
