Wow. That word best describes our finish today in The Villages, Florida. The 2014 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty has seen a lot of great finishes in a lot of great towns, but this one will go down in the record books as one of the greatest of all time. Thousands of folks lined the streets, well before it was show time. The temperatures were hot, the humidity was off the charts and the sun was harsh, but The Villages supported the Great Race by rolling out the red carpet for us! Little did we know that The Villages has a marching band and a cheerleading squad, but they came out and performed for us today. We had a wonderful time at the finish, and announced each and every car as it rolled through the gate. Wow, what a finish–enjoy some of the highlights of the finish and stay tuned for more posts regarding the Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty.
