We covered a lot of ground on the first day of the 2015 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty. We started our day with an enormous start in historic downtown Kirkwood, Missouri and headed West to get started on our Route 66 adventure. We passed lots of cool attractions, including the Wagon Wheel Motel and the World’s Largest Rocking Chair, on our way to the lunch stop in Rolla, Missouri. Then, we continued West on and off Route 66, over scenic bridges and made a few elevation changes on our way to Springfield, Missouri for our overnight stop. Despite a few mishaps on the road, we had a successful day of Great Racing, and we hope to continue tomorrow as we move into Oklahoma! Stay tuned!
