Wow, what a difference a day can make! We’ve spent the entire first three days of the 2022 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty Drivers Club with unseasonably chilly temperatures. That changed today! We started our day in Erie, Pennsylvania, where the temperature was already higher than it had been all week. From there, we blasted into Ohio to start our day of competition. Within a few minutes of going on the clock, we passed through a beautiful covered bridge. The rest of the morning was spent making our way through farm land, and the would set the tone for the rest of the day’s rally. Corn, soy beans, wheat and other crops made up the scenery with a challenging mixture of at-speed turns, stop signs and speed changes. For lunch, we stopped in Medina, Ohio, where we were greeted by thousands of spectators who braved the heat for an awesome experience, as 120+ Great Race cars rolled into town. Perrysburg, Ohio also had a huge turnout of folks, complete with a car show with lots of great local cars. The team that tamed Stage 4’s challenges was Jody Knowles and Beth Gentry, with a score of 6.48 seconds. It was actually a tie for top spot between Knowles/Gentry and yesterday’s winners, Hull/Stahl with the 66 team winning the tie breaker. Stay tuned for more coverage tomorrow, as we cross into Indiana and Illinois!
