Saw a sound bite on the 5 o'clock news about the start of the Great Race today in North Carolina, anybody go? It showed a 55 Commander coupe? and what looked like a red 57 Silver hawk entered. Be interesting to know how many Studebakers are enterered this year.

I saw that soundbite too. Looked at the GAR website. The '55 President also ran in the 2006 race. Driver & navigator are
A. Reichmann & U. Kammholz.
The '57 Silver Hawk driver & navigator are F. Patterson & F. Patterson.
Route this year doesn't come anyways near me. Last year it overnighted in Western PA.

The GAR will be stopping right here I Searcy around noon on July 4th. I didn't realize that there would be cars as late as any of the Hawks in the race. A few years back when I saw them come through Texarkana I do remember a few cars around 1950 or so.

Well if I was you I'd get down there the 4th and cheer them on,[8D]we did when our SDC chapter was invited to assist in getting them parked here in Omaha several years ago during their lunch stop, even met SDC members that were participants,even though they were driving a Plymouth.Oh well.
