We’ve been getting tons of phone calls and emails about the 2013 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty. We have folks call us about entering the event on a regular basis, and we recently spoke with Jerome Reinan of Denver, Colorado. His 1917 American LaFrance make look familiar to some of the Great Race veterans, as it competed in the Great Race back in 1994 when we went from Huntington Beach, California to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania! Jerome and his American LaFrance is ready for action again, and recently entered for the 2013 event!
Jerome kept all of the Great Race decals on his car from the ’94 event, as a great way to remember the event. He plans to keep those decals, even when he goes through tech inspection for the 2013 Great Race, which goes from St. Paul, Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama! Generally, if someone wants to keep their old decals on the car, we can apply the decal to a special magnet so the decals are preserved. We’re glad to have Jerome on board with the 2013 Great Race, so be on the lookout for his bright yellow American LaFrance when we come to your town!
