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 Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN. The biggest shows bring over 4K cars and 20K attendees!
He parlayed that show into a way to raise money for a local school called “Northern Voices” by creating The Kannonball Fun Charity 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 almost $40K for Northern Voices. This rally begins at the June MN Cars & Coffee™ show. (www.KannonballRally.com)
In 2017, the inaugural KannonFALL Rally was launched in Two Harbors, MN. Raising nearly $5K 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.
In January 2018, the Cactusball Rally will launch in Scottsdale, AZ. This rally will also benefit “The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children" and will feature missing children in that area. This 2-day rally will take teams from Scottsdale to Sedona to Las Vegas.
Growing up, Tyler’s favorite movie
was “The Cannonball Run.”
