The 2019 Great Race is coming back to Gardnerville, this time for an over-night stay!

Named for the 1965 feature film comedy starring Jack Lemmon, Natalie Wood, Peter Falk and Tony Curtis (who appeared as a special guest in the 2004 Great Race), the event has grown exponentially in popularity since its founding by Tom McRae in 1983. Officially a time/speed/distance rally open to any automobile built in 1974 or earlier, teams consisting of a driver and navigator are given precise route instructions – down to the second – each day. Arriving at a check point too early or too late results in a penalty, and the goal is to finish the event with as few penalties (and hence, the lowest score) as possible.

Stay tuned for more details
