Sights from the 2015 Great Race Route!

RestoredGasStation
Great Race rally master John Classen has made his first of three trips along the 2015 route from Kirkwood, Missouri, to Santa Monica, California, and his driver, longtime scoring team member Fred Sprague, took some photos along the way that we thought we would share. One is from a restored 1940s era gas station near McLean, Texas. Another is from the Petrified Forest (where participants next year will get to stretch their legs for a while). The third is of dollar bills decorating the restaurant at the Oatman Hotel in Oatman, Arizona. The pit stop in Oatman will be best remembered for the wild burros that roam the streets. The 2015 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty will be a memorable event–we can’t wait until June!!!

Longtime Great Racer Jim Boggs has what he believes is the perfect future rally car for someone. It’s a 1929 Ford Model A Tudor sedan with a late 1940’s Flathead V8. Jim says the car sits on a new 1928-31 boxed frame and that the engine code is a 59A, which makes it a 1946-48. He is asking $13,000. If anyone is interested, give Jim a call on his cell at 843-270-7149.

The annual Pumpkin Run was held in Millsboro, Delaware on October 17-20, and 27 cars participated in the rally. The weather was beautiful, and more than $6,000 was raised for the Millsboro Volunteer Fire Department. Corky Rutledge and his son-in-law Ryan Dressler won the event in their 1929 Ford Model A pickup. Corky and his son Tim are Great Race veterans who won the Sportsman Division in 2011 and finished third overall in the same truck.
