Great Race 2024 – Day 9 – Rallying to the Finish in Gardiner, Maine

July 1, 2024

There was so much action on Day 9 of the 2024 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Coker Tire that we had to split it up into multiple posts. Here, we’ll see action from a challenging Stage 9 course, filled with quick turns, and a classic John Classen maze that sent racers zooming all over the back roads in different directions. By noon, most of the rallying was over for the day, and racers grabbed lunch and stopped for a quick visit to a private car collection before rolling into the finish line. The challenging course was a piece of cake for the father-and-son Fredette team. Jeff drove the wheels off his 1933 Ford pickup truck, while Eric calculated the maneuvers and speed changes in a precise manner. Jeff and Eric Fredette won Stage 9 with a score of 4.89 seconds, a time that would position them in fourth place overall at the finish. Speaking of the finish, we’ll have a separate post with fun photos from the finish line in beautiful Gardiner, Maine. It was one for the record books!

    • Gettysburgh was such a moving experience , ill have to come back and spend more time, the reception was wonderful

  • We finally got to see a Great Race stopover this year at Lawrenceburg IN. Very enjoyable automotive event. So good to see such a variety of vintage and collector cars still being used as cars, rather than sitting in a show car field. No car status ranking or snobbery just a lot of nice folks doing something fun with the cars they love.

  • Got to see the Great Race in Lewisburg,Pa., enjoyed every moment, seeing the old cars. Congratulations to all the participants. reall enjoed seeing at least one Studebaker in the running.

  • Congrats to this year’s winners!
    I didn’t see any pictures of the Rambling Troubadours of Finland. Were they racing this year?
    Also, is it possible to get a program mailed prior to next year’s race and if so, what is the procedure?
