The Great Race 2018: June 23 - July 1
The Great Race is a 2,500 mile timed, controlled speed, navigation, endurance rally for vintage cars. This is the 3rd year Habitat joins forces with veteran local Nevada County racers Bill and Carolyn Croker in their 1936 Packard as they race from Buffalo, NY to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Habitat’s team is racing to build homes, and challenges other Habitat supporters to make a pledge. (Update: Molly, their Packard, has recently experienced some serious engine trouble that cannot be repaired in time, so they will be driving Maxine, an orange 1938 Ford Coupe, in the 2018 race.)
