The Great Race is a cross-country rally that pits driver and navigator teams against the clock and against each other, each in a vehicle 1969 or older. The HVA entered a 1954 Oldsmobile Super 88, also known as "Miss Adventure". Entrants participate in a timed, controlled-speed, endurance competition over scenic public highways and roads. The scores for each team are the result of their ability to follow all designated course instructions precisely. This year’s running of the Great Race made its way around the Great Lakes, covering 2,300 miles over the course of nine days. Starting in the HVA’s hometown of Traverse City, MI, the route took racers up through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, into Ontario, New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio before coming to an end at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. Along the way the HVA team captured numerous This Car Matters stories, along with photographs of each city’s events and a daily blog.
