Day 2 of the Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty Drivers Club kicked off with intense sunshine, as we motored north of Waco before peeling off the interstate and starting the timed portion of the route. Early on, the route sent the teams into a loop, and then continued on toward Granbury, Texas, which is home to Sister McRae. She is the sister of Great Race founder, Tom McRae, and this whole idea started right there in Granbury. We received a warm welcome at the historic courthouse square, ate a quick lunch and jumped back on the road to get the afternoon route started. We passed so many beautiful farms and ranches, and the rolling hills provided a nice view of the landscape. As the day of rallying came to an end, we started seeing people pulled off the side of the road, and sitting in their front yards to watch the cars roll in. The smiling faces and friendly waves let us know what to expect at our dinner stop in Nocona, Texas, a small town that is the Classic Car Capital of Texas! With so many enthusiasts around the area, we were surrounded by car guys and gals, and we had the opportunity to check out the Horton Classic Car Museum. Check out our highlights from today’s route, including some fun car-to-car shots that we got on our late evening drive to the hotels.
