Great Race director Jeff Stumbs two-year term on the board of directors for the Antique Automobile Club of America ended last week at the annual meeting in Philadelphia just as another Great Racers term began. Tabetha Hammer, Affinity Communications Manager with Hagerty and a three-year participant in the Great Race, began her term (2015-17) on the AACA board as one of three new directors sworn in on Feb. 12.
Hammer started competing in the Great Race in 2012 driving a 1962 International truck. In 2013, she drove a 1969 Camaro SS that had been restored by the employees at Hagerty. And for 2014 and the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, she drove a 1964 ½ Mustang that also was restored by the employees at Hagerty.
I enjoyed being on the board of the top organization of the hobby, Stumb said. I made a lot of great friends who dedicate a lot of time and energy to making it an even better hobby, and I know Tabetha will be a fantastic addition to AACA.

I am a member of the AACA and was present at the Feb meeting in Philadelphia. Although I did not attend the final meeting. Was the great race announced at the meeting? I did not hear anything about the event. What is the final price for the event in 2016? I see that a $2000 deposit is needed.
My son and I were going to make the trip in 2012 in a 1966 Chevelle Convertible when I turned 66, but things did not come together. He is a pilot in the Marine Corps and duty came first.
Thanks for a wonderful post, Jeff! It’s an absolute honor to be serving such a wonderful club as the AACA and it’s membership! It means the world to me to have the support of people like you and the entire Great Race Family…I hope I will make you all very proud!
Congrats tab u r a great addition to the old car hobby
…feeling so proud to know both a former and a current member of the Board of Directors of AACA. The organization is in great hands!
Richard: the 2016 route will be announced in March. And yes, a $2,000 deposit will get you a spot reserved. Please call me at 423-648-8542 or email me at [email protected] to discuss any questions you might have.
