The 2021 Hemmings Motor News Great Race, which started on June 19 in San Antonio, Texas, will cross the finish line June 27 in Greenville.
The nine-day, 2,300-mile adventure brings 120 antique automobiles to 19 cities across Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
“We are excited to have finalized the finish in downtown Greenville, one of the most progressive and exciting small cities in America,” says race director Jeff Stumb. “There are more than 500 people just in our entourage from all around the world. And along the route they will see amazing sites, including crossing the Red, Mississippi, Tennessee and Ohio rivers as well as cutting through the Appalachian Mountains.”
The race’s closing ceremony will begin at 1:25 p.m. on June 27 by NOMA Square with the first car expected to cross the finish line around 1:40 p.m. The Great Race winners will be officially announced at 4 p.m., with each winning team awarded $50,000 out of the $150,000 total purse.
Teams are made up of a driver and navigator. Winners are chosen based on a score they receive at secret checkpoints along the way; they may be penalized for each second they are late. The team with the lowest overall score wins.
Upon crossing the finish line, participants will park their cars on Main Street, between McBee Avenue and NOMA Square, for viewing until 4:30 p.m.
