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 […]

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 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty is completely full and a waiting list has been established, director Jeff Stumb has announced. It marks the earliest the Great Race has sold out in its 32-year history. “We have had a remarkable early turnout of veterans, especially from those who were rookies in the 2014 Great Race,” Stumb said. “And we have 37 rookie teams for 2015 already signed up.” There still may be a good chance to enter the 2015 Great Race from the waiting list. “Last year, we had five teams that entered but couldn’t make the […]

Note: This is the final of a nine-part series of Great Race Director Jeff Stumb’s thoughts on each day on the 2015 Great Race route after returning from setting up the stops for next year’s event. The day everyone on the 2015 Great Race has been waiting will arriving on Sunday, June 28, when each participant will cross the finish line at the Santa Monica Pier at the end of Route 66. That morning will begin in San Bernardino, and after an early morning calibration the racers will rally for a couple of hours before heading to the coast. The […]

Note: This is the eighth of a nine-part series of Great Race Director Jeff Stumb’s thoughts on each day on the 2015 Great Race route after returning from setting up the stops for next year’s event. The last two days of the Great Race each year are what we call Championship Run. In the first seven days, participants can throw out their worst legs (between three and five depending on division). The last two days, everyone must keep their total score from each day. The race can be won or lost on these two days. The first day of Championship […]

Note: This is the seventh of a nine-part series of Great Race Director Jeff Stumb’s thoughts on each day on the 2015 Great Race route after returning from setting up the stops for next year’s event. The end of the first week of the 2015 Great Race will find the racers still in the state of Arizona, and they will be in for a memorable treat. First, they will start the day in Flagstaff at more than 9,000 feet above sea level among the tall western pines. Before the day is out, they will travel down to just 450 feet […]

Note: This is the sixth of a nine-part series of Great Race Director Jeff Stumb’s thoughts on each day on the 2015 Great Race route after returning from setting up the stops for next year’s event. After almost two full days in the state of New Mexico, on Day 6 the 2015 Great Race participants will quickly arrive in the state of Arizona. And they will spend the next two days in the Grand Canyon State seeing its highest mountains and its lowest valleys. On this day they will climb over the course of the day to more than 9,000 […]

Note: This is the fifth of a nine-part series of Great Race Director Jeff Stumb’s thoughts on each day on the 2015 Great Race route after returning from setting up the stops for next year’s event. Continuing the trek westward to California as we examine the 2015 Great Race along Route 66, Day 5 will take place all in the state of New Mexico. For those who have never been to the you will see where it gets its nickname, “Land of Enchantment.” On Day 4, we ventured off the traditional Route 66 to take in the original Route 66 […]
