The 2015 Great Race was the second time Kirkwood , Missouri had the honor of hosting this great event! We can’t wait to host it a third time, especially after winning the “Best Overnight Stop” both times!! What a way to bring the community together.
Kirkwood served as this year’s official start to the race which brought over 8,000 people to our downtown district to see the cars and to experience Kirkwood. It also helped to kick off the inaugural “Kirkwood Missouri Route 66 Festival”, an event we hope to continue until well past the next time the Great Race comes to town.
I would like to thank the Great Race organization for choosing us as the start city and for helping to walk us through the planning and execution of the event. Their partnership, assistance and experience is invaluable. Also, thanks to the drivers who were more than friendly and proved to be super ambassadors for the race.
