The radiators might still be warm from the 2014 Great Race, but the organizers are already getting ready for the 2015 Great Race. Next year the Great Race will have a Route 66 theme, as it generally follows the legendary road from Illinois to California.
Route 66 For The 2015 Great Race
The 2015 Great Race will start in the St. Louis area on Saturday, June 20, and will finish in southern California on Sunday, June 28, 2015. Further details of the route and the cities that the Great Race will pass through will be made available by the organizers at a later date.
For the 2015 Great Race a private entry fee will remain $5,000, and a $500 discount is available for those who pay a $2,000 deposit by Sept. 30 and the balance of $2,500 by Dec. 31. It is expected that once again, the first place overall prize will be $50,000, with a $150,000 total prize money pool assuming that a minimum of 100 entries are received. Contact information is presented on the poster shown above.
This route is something of a departure from recent Great Race events that have been held in the eastern part of the USA and Canada.
