Great Race 2013–Grand Finish in Mobile, Alabama!

June 30, 2013

Great Race 2013

We’re blessed to be the adventure of a lifetime that we can do every year! And the 2013 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty has come to an end in grand style today! We did some intense rallying this morning, then stopped in Irvington, Alabama for lunch and a couple laps around the Mobile International Speedway oval track. It was tons of fun, and we had an all out fish fry, thanks to the kind hosts! Then, it was time to make the short drive into downtown Mobile, Alabama for the Grand Finish, where we’d find out the final scores and see where everyone stacked up. Matching their incredible job on last year’s race, the unstoppable team of Irene and Barry Jason wheeled their 1935 Ford coupe to victory, taking home the HUGE $50,000 Grand Championship prize! It’s impressive just to win one Grand Championship, but back-to-back wins is almost out of the question with the level of competition we have these days. Congrats to all of the winners in each class, and a big congrats to Sister McRae, who won the Tom McRae Spirit of the Event award this year! Thanks for all of your hard work, and dedication to the Great Race! Check out our favorite shots of the day, and stay tuned for the final scores!
