The 2014 Hemmings Motor News Great Race To Stop At Patriots PointChris Hauff Jun 11, 2014
Friday, June 27th more than 100 vintage, antique and collector cars participating in The 2014 Hemmings Motor News Great Race will roll into the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum, landside of the USS YORKTOWN.
These very rare cars are all model year 1972 or older. They will be on display from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the drivers and learn more about their entirely authentic cars.
The oldest car participating in the Great Race is a 1915 Hudson. Recognizable cars, such as the “General Lee” and a real-life recreation of “Doc Hudson” from the Pixar movie, “Cars”, will also be in the competition.
In addition to the Great Race cars, more than 80 vehicles from local car clubs will also be on display. Those vehicles can be viewed starting at 2 p.m. Food, beer and wine will be available at that time for purchase from Sticky Fingers Smokehouse Express. RSVP to the event on our Facebook page, here.
Admission to the 2014 Hemmings Motor News Great Race show is free, however, parking will cost $5.
About the 2014 Hemmings Motor News Great Race
The Great Race is the world’s premiere vintage car rally. Drivers compete for nine days, crossing 13 state borders from Maine to Florida while traveling 2,100 miles.
The course avoids timed segments on interstate highways, opting instead for scenic local, county and state highways when possible.
The race is based on four to seven daily checkpoints that drivers must reach at a specific time. Every second off of the perfect time results in a penalty point.
There is $150,000 in prize money. The 2014 Great Race Grand Champion will win $50,000.

I have a 1960 corvette and would like to put it in the pre-car show on June 27th. Who do I contact for the information. Thank you
You can bring the car the day of. We are giving cars outside of the Great Race the ability to set up in our parking lot on a first come first serve basis.
Can I access this event by water taxi?
Yes you can, however, you should make sure you know when the last taxi of the day will depart.
