Great Race 2022 – Day 2 – Windsor Locks, CT to Binghamton, NY

June 19, 2022

Day 2 of the Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty Drivers Club brought a number of challenges for the drivers, navigators and of course, the cars. We rolled out of Windsor Locks, Connecticut and made our way to the backroads for a scenic route that featured hills, narrow roads and countless small towns. In those small towns, the race teams fought through congested streets, traffic lights and other distractions, but managed to stay on time, or at least make up the time in a later portion of the leg. As we made our way into the small town of Montgomery, New York, we were greeted by thousands of folks who came out on a sunny Sunday to check out our field of 130 cars and trucks. The town itself is beautiful, and the people there were incredibly nice. After a quick lunch, we were back on the road, once again making our way through small towns, scenic back roads and a beautiful drive along the Delaware River along Route 97. Another cool sight was the property where the famous Woodstock Music and Art Fair (most commonly referred to as simply Woodstock) took place in 1969. With so many great things to see, we were able to capture a lot of cool shots today, so enjoy our gallery of photos. We once again had a first time daily winner…this time it was Neil “Catfish” Myerscough and his daughter Shanna “Banana” Chatraw in their 1934 Ford Indy racer. Tomorrow we continue our Westward trek across New York State, ending up in Erie, Pennsylvania. Follow us on Facebook to see more fun content every day!
