Over 1,000 spectators visited Angell Park in Sun Prairie on Thursday June 23 to witness a vast variety of classic and antique cars stop for lunch on day six of the nine-day Great Race that started on June 18 in Warwick, Rhode Island and finished in Fargo, North Dakota on June 26.
The Great Race is an annual automotive competition based on precision driving and navigational skills in vehicles manufactured in 1974 or earlier. Events are timed, controlled-speed, endurance rallies. Each vehicle is composed of a two-person team: a driver and a navigator. Each vehicle follows a prescribed common route while attempting to stay on time.
