Getting Ready for the Great Race 2019

The route for the 2019 Great Race.

It’s almost that time of year again, time for the Great Race 2019. This will be the seventh appearance of Spirit of Stahls’ teams participating in this antique car road rally that covers over 2,000 miles in just 10 days. This year the route begins in Riverside, California and ends up in Tacoma, Washington. If you’d like to come along for the ride, we will be posting about our adventures every few days from the road. This year we have five teams taking part. The Spirit of Stahls’ cars are being loaded up for the long haul to California. If you’d like to learn more about the teams, the trading cards we’ll be handing out are pictured below. This year we have five teams and we are all very excited about our upcoming adventure. We’ll be sharing more about each team and each car along the way, but for now, here is a look at the trading cards. If you live anywhere along the route, we highly encourage you to come out and see the amazing spectacle of 100 antique cards cruising through your town. It’s a sight to behold and we are truly looking forward to meeting new friends and greeting many of our Great Race friends again soon. Thank you to everyone who helped to make it possible, there’s a lot of work involved in getting the cars rally ready. As usual, we couldn’t have done it without Magic Dave.

The Spirit of Stahls’ cars are ready and waiting to hit the road. An enormous amount of prep goes into getting each car rally ready.

This 1916 Hudson Series H Super Six is no stranger to the Great Race. It’s a three-time entrant built and driven by the Richard Burdick-Wayne Bell team and took home top prize in the 2000 race. This will be its first appearance with Team Stahl!
