Founded in 2004, Never 55 Productions, Inc. is owned and operated by Tyler Christopherson.
A lifelong car enthusiast, Tyler turned his passion into a way to help children in need by creating various automotive events focused on raising funds and awareness of local charities.
In 2008, he co-founded MN Cars & Coffee™ which has now become the largest monthly car gathering in the country. The show is located at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, MN. The biggest shows bring over 4K cars and 20K attendees. This free event is great way to ensure the next generation of car enthusiasts have a place to share their passion.
He parlayed that show into a way to raise money for a local school called “Northern Voices” by creating The Kannonball Rally in 2015. This wonderful school teaches deaf children how to speak and listen using their cochlear impacts and hearing aids. To date, this rally has raised over $120K for Northern Voices. Tyler's youngest daughter, Harper, is a graduate of Northern Voices program! This rally begins at every June show at MN Cars & Coffee™
In 2017, the inaugural KannonFALL Rally was launched in Two Harbors, MN. Raising awareness for “The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children", each team car featured a picture and bio of a missing child in Minnesota to help raise awareness of each individual case. They also partner with Secondhand Hounds and create toys for all the animals they help. The rally continues benefiting both charities each fall.
In January 2018, the Cactusball Rally was created. This rally takes teams around the SW region of the US. This rally will also benefit “The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children" and will feature missing children in that area on each car.
Growing up, Tyler’s favorite movie
was “The Cannonball Run.”
