We kicked off the 2018 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty with some pre-race activities. Many of our racers, staff and support crews arrived in Buffalo, New York today, so it was a good time to get together for the first gathering of the event. We did so with a relaxed dinner in the “annex” of the Pierce Arrow Museum. The back building features some upcoming feature cars and projects in the works, so it was cool to get a behind the scenes look while also enjoying a great meal. Check out some of our photos from the Wednesday night dinner, as well as some photos from the parking lot and a group shot of our 2018 Great Race staff.
