What timing! With the renewed Great Race upon us, we’ve come to the account of Hemmings Motor News’s first participation in the Great American Race in SIA #96, December 1986. Of note here: The format of the time-speed-distance race has remained the same these last 25 years, and article author David Brownell did an excellent job of explaining that format. Also, the 1936 Dodge humpback van that was used in the event remains in the Hemmings collection today, proudly displayed in our own Sibley Shop museum.
