As all Great Racers know, the 30th anniversary Great Race will start in St. Paul, Minnesota, on June 22, 2013, and will follow the Mississippi River south toward New Orleans before finishing in Mobile, Alabama, on June 30.
Our friends at the Back to the 50s Weekend car show in St. Paul invited the Great Race to Minnesota for their 40th anniversary, and we will start at their event at the State Fairgrounds. Each year, they draw more than 12,000 cars and 100,000 people to the show – the largest of its kind in North America.
And in conjunction with their 40th anniversary, Back to the 50s Weekend has a new logo, and we wanted to share it with you here. You will be seeing a lot of this logo six months from this week as we arrive in St. Paul for the two ultimate “car guy” events – the Great Race and Back to the 50s Weekend.
