Wow. Still so hard to believe that this years race has already begun. Today the Hemming’s Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty was sent off by the wonderful crowds of Kirkwood, Missouri. Excitement filled the air in Kirkwood as all 117 cars began their journey, and headed towards Rolla. In Rolla were greeted by great folks, as well as great pizza! However, after the delicious lunch it was time to hit the road again! We were greeted in Springfield by delightful people, along with the Great American Tour! It was so great to see all of the beautiful cars on the tour so close to the rally cars. If every day on this race is as good as today, (which I know it will be, if not, better!) then we are going to have one heck of a Great Race.
