Classic car racing event to visit Millsboro on June 24


The Hemmings Motor News Great Race, presented by Hagerty, will make a lunch stop at Town Hall in downtown Millsboro on Tuesday, June 24, starting at 11:15 a.m. This classic car event spans more than 2,000 miles each year. Thousands of spectators flock to the cities and towns along the route to see the pre-1972 cars and trucks, which are battling for $150,000 in prize money.

More than 100 vehicles are competing in this year’s Great Race, with the oldest being a 1915 Hudson. Recognizable cars, such as the “General Lee” and a real-life recreation of “Doc Hudson” from the Pixar movie “Cars,” will be in competition, as well as a number of rare and highly valuable vehicles.

“When the Great Race pulls into a city, it becomes an instant festival,” Great Race Director Jeff Stumb said.

The event is free to the public and allows spectators to get up close and personal to all of the vehicles. The event will take place at Town Hall in Millsboro, and spectators will have the chance to see more than 100 vintage vehicles embark on the ultimate journey.
