Road Runner Express opens ‘Taj Mahal of carwashes’

LYNCHBURG, Va. — Road Runner Express Car Wash opened on Timberlake Road, and customers will have no problem spotting it thanks to the large and ornate design of the building, as reported by ABC 13 News.

“We just wanted to put something here that would be a visual appeal to everyone driving past it, and it gets people talking about it. The Taj Mahal of carwashes — we hear that a lot,” said General Manager Daniel Cyrus.

The Road Runner Express is now open and giving out its top-dollar carwashes for free through Sunday, Oct. 24th.

It is the only carwash in Lynchburg with a buff and dry, setting it apart from the competition.
