Great Race 2024: Trophy Run Coverage

June 22, 2024

It’s the moment we’ve been waiting for! Our whole gang is in Owensboro, Kentucky awaiting the Green Flag, but as always, there are plenty of pre-race activities to mark off the list before we officially hit the road. Thursday was registration and tech inspection day, and today, we had our all-hands-on-deck meeting and then we tackled the Trophy Run. This warm-up rally offered about three hours of action, but those three hours were hot and humid, putting both man and machine to the test. There were a few breakdown and mishaps, but we’re hoping for a full field to take the green flag tomorrow on Veterans BLVD here in Owensboro. Today’s route took us through back roads and farm land and it was just a taste of what we’ll see in the days to come. Although the route was short, it had its challenges and the team that came out on top was Jody Knowles and Beth Gentry in the #66 entry, a 1932 Ford Cabriolet. They are no stranger to the Winner’s Circle, whether it’s Great Race, Dirt Track or pretty much anything with a steering wheel. Take a look at our highlights from today and stay tuned for all sorts of great content all week long on our website, Facebook page and Instagram page.
