Hemmings Popper
During our stop in Bennington, Vermont, home of our title sponsor, Hemmings Motor News, you’ll be able to buy a cup of popcorn for ONE DOLLAR! That’s right, we’re not talkin’ movie theater prices–one buck gets a cup of popcorn, and all of the proceeds go to Rex Gardner’s autism foundation. The coolest aspect of the popcorn experience is the 1928 Ford Cretor Popcorn Truck–if you see it in Bennington, stop by and get a cup!

2014 Rally Final Planning Underway

By Great Race
April 9, 2014

The Great Race makes it a point to rally drivers through some of the most interesting and challenging terrain our vast country has to offer and this year is no different. For 2014 the eastern seaboard plays host to thousands of miles of mountains, countryside, marshlands and coastal seascapes. Race Director Jeff Stumb is on the road this week and next sorting out some of the last details that make it possible to rally a hundred cars in and out of so many small towns along the route.

One thing is certain, if you’re racing this year or aspire to, you should be working on your cars to get them ready to make the spectacular run from Maine to Florida. You won’t want to miss a single mile this summer. Veterans will tell you that having your competition car well sorted out and road tested makes a huge difference when the green flag drops and the competition begins.

Look for more updates from the road like the one below, as Jeff Stumb makes his way down the incredible east coast enroute to the Florida finish.

Our good buddy, and mega Great Race supporter, Jim Menneto attended the Lake Mirror Classic with his 1932 Ford speedster last weekend. He is a regular at the Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty, and he’s also the President of Hemmings, so we certainly appreciate everything he does for the Great Race. This week, he sent us a picture of his Speedster with our 2014 Great Race poster in clear view. We can’t wait to do the Maine to Florida route, and you can bet this blue roadster will be along for the ride!

Great Race 2013

The 2012 Great Race around the Great Lakes produced a record number of rookie entries into the event – a number many thought would never be broken. Well, one year later, that number has been broken with more than 50 days to go before the 2013 race takes off from St. Paul. Currently, there are 28 rookie teams entered in the Great Race, from as far away as California and Florida.

One of the hardest things about the Great Race is you meet so many people from all over the country (and the world) but you only get to see most of them once a year on the race. And when you become friends with literally thousands of people over the years who have participated in the Great Race it is inevitable that you are going to lose some from time to time. [more]
