Longtime Great Racers Rich McKone and Charlie Brittingham won the annual Sugar Valley Rally in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, last weekend in the final tune up to the Great Race. McKone, from Peoria, Illinois, and Brittingham, from Jasper, Indiana, have been running together since 2013, although McKone has more than 25 years of Great Racing under his belt. The two and their 1936 Ford Sedan will be in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, June 24 for the start of the 2017 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty, which will travel through Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan before finishing July 2 in Traverse City, Michigan.

    • Thank you Tom for the kind comments-Scotch
      sounds good. After 25 years, I still look forward to
      the Race and seeing everyone!


  • Rich and Charlie, it is great to see you on top of the board! A good accomplishment for good friends! See you down the road.

  • PLEASE!! What is the actual highway route? I can’t seem to find anything that tells exactly what roads are being used. I’m with a local model car club and I’d like to catch them in Franklin, IN.

    Thank you

    • Bill, No one can tell you the route, because we don’t know it. The route is kept secret from the competitors until just before we leave each morning. The best way to find us is to go to one of the scheduled lunch, or dinner/overnight stop cities. The rally portions are usually done on rural two lanes, so that stop lights and traffic congestion can be avoided.
