This time every year, The Great Race is contested.

It's pretty cool - 100 vintage cars (at least 45 years old) on a 9 day timed rally from Minneapolis to Mobile, Alabama. Many of the cars are MUCH older than 45 years. Different route each year.

My son-in-law is the navigator and his dad is the driver in their (open cockpit)1916 Hudson. Here is their Great Race Facebook page

The cover photo is my two grand daughters in the 1916 Hudson. The cover photo inset shows the guys hoisting the trophy after winning the 2011 Race (in a 1911 Velie manufactured by John Deere). They have been driving in this thing for 20+ years and this was their first victory. Yesterday was the first leg of this year's race and they are currently IN 1st place!!!
