January 20, 2012

The total purse for the 2012 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty is going to be $118,500, event Director Jeff Stumb has announced. The Grand Champion of the race will receive a minimum of $25,000. The total purse is an increase of 32 percent over last year, and the Grand Champion is guaranteed to pocket at least $5,000 more than last year.

The other major increases are the addition of daily prize money and an increase of one extra paid position in each division and class. “And we increased the total amount paid out in each class as well,” Stumb said.
