We have just heard from Sister McRae and she reports that she is safe from the terrible tornado which hit her hometown of Granbury, Texas, last night. She says the damage is about five miles from her house and that it is severe. News reports say that several were killed and that dozens more are seriously injured.
Granbury is the former longtime home of the Great Race and founder Tom McRae. For many years, a three-day regional rally was also held in Granbury, so many veteran racers have spent time there. Sister said she is looking forward to the Great Race seeing everyone on the event next month from St. Paul to Mobile. She will once again be working closely with the souvenir sales staff.
