1938 Kenworth to Run Portion of Great Race Again
June 19, 2013
CAT Scale’s 1938 Kenworth will be hitting the highway again to compete in a portion of the Hemming’s Motor News Great Race, a cross-country road rally of antique vehicles.
1938 Kenworth during the 2001 Great Race.
It will run the race from LaCrosse, Wisc. to Hannibal, Mo. and is the only semi-tractor in the cross-country competition. The Iowa 80 Truckstop is also hosting a fuel stop for Great Race vehicles on June 23.
The Great Race is a time/speed/endurance road-rally for vintage vehicles, manufactured at least forty-five years ago. The 2013 event will be run over nine days, starting in St. Paul, Minnesota on June 22 and ending on June 30 in Mobile, Alabama.
"We ran our 1938 Kenworth in the Great Race for over 10 years, so we know many of the racers and Great Race staff. We are very excited to be running in this road rally again, even if it’s not the whole race. It will be just like old times." says Delia Moon Meier, senior vice president, CAT Scale.
