from Michael Taylor:
"Details: The Great Race, put on by Hemmings Motor News and presented by
Hagerty Insurance, is a 2,400-mile rally that started Saturday morning (June
18) in downtown San Rafael, Calif., and will end up Sunday night (June 26)
in Moline, Ill. Along the way, the cars and trucks entered in the race will
occasionally follow the Lincoln Highway. The race program showed 137
vehicles entered for the event. Hopefully, they'll also have a chase truck
or two, the better to have on hand fanbelts for cars that are 70 or 80 years
old, as well as water pumps, generators, spare tires and the like..."
