Day two of the Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty started off with a beautiful morning in Lowell, Massachusetts, and we went right into a tough day of rallying through lots of amazing New England scenery. The mountains are incredible, the air is clear and we’re enjoying every mile of it. We snaked our way into Bennington, Vermont for a lunch stop, which required crossing a few of those glorious mountains to get there. Bennington is the home of the Great Race title sponsor, Hemmings Motor News, so we thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Bennington Station. The Bennington Fire Department fed us well, and sent us down the road for more adventures. Keep reading to find out more about our day and see our photo highlights from the day’s rally!
After we made a quick visit to the Hemmings Motor News facility, we got back into rallying mode, and started a challenging afternoon route that sent us through the scenic countryside of Vermont. We then crossed into New York, and eventually made our way into the town of Poughkeepsie for our dinner stop. The day’s finish line ceremony was held at Shadows on the Hudson, which is located on the Hudson River. The views were outstanding, and more than one hundred local classic cars came out to join the fun. Tomorrow, we get up bright and early and make our way into Pennsylvania for the day.
