What a day! We covered a lot of ground on Day 2 of the Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty. We started the day in Lancaster, California, and hit the road bright and early. The morning route was straight forward and featured long stretches of scenic highway with snow-capped mountains to our left with more mountains to our right. We passed through Red Rock Canyon State Park, as well as several small towns such as Lone Pine, Independence, and Big Pine. Even though it felt like low-lying desert land, we were gradually climbing in elevation as we made our way to Bishop, California for lunch. Our brief stop at the Bishop City Park was awesome with plenty of shade and delicious BBQ that had us begging for a second helping. From there, we inched our way closer those snow-capped mountains, and the result was an incredible view the early portion of the afternoon course. Then, we made our way up to Deadman Summit, with an elevation of 8,047 feet. The elevation changes and the extremely long day of rallying (400 miles) made for a tough day, but we finally made it to Carson Valley, specifically Gardnerville, Nevada. The folks in the area came out for a car show, and spectators came out in droves. As the action was winding down, our scoring team gave us the news that the Stage 2 winners were Brad and Erin Kaplan in their 1966 Ford Mustang.
