Our journey on the Lincoln Highway continued this morning. Racers left from Evanston, Wyoming, and continued east towards Rawlins, Wyoming. The small town was full of character, and racers were eagerly greeted with a smile and home-cooked barbecue for lunch. From there the teams traveled up 10,000 feet on the side of a mountain in Medicine Bow, Wyoming.

However, there was one thing that made around one hundred rally cars years 1972 and below a little bit more interesting. SNOW! The tip of the mountain was indeed covered with snow! Hemmings Motor News’ Jim Menetto posted on social media “Medicine Bow, Wyoming. 10,000 feet. A must see if you haven’t.”. He was not the only one impressed, many racers were astonished at the amazing views that they were able to witness on this amazing experience we call The Great Race.

Racers continued their journey on to Cheyenne, Wyoming, where people lined the streets surrounding the Cheyenne Depot Museum. The cars began to file in, and soon enough around 100 cars lined the square in Cheyenne, Wyoming. An early start time will be enforced tomorrow, as the first car will depart from Cheyenne at 7:00am. Two states will be covered tomorrow, as we will leave Wyoming and travel into the fourth state of the Hemmings Motor News Great Race Presented By Hagerty, which will be the great state of South Dakota.

Talk to you there,
