  • The Great Race 2024

    Saturday June 22, 2024

    Location: downtown Owensboro

    The Great Race is a time, speed, endurance rally, meaning the goal isn't to get to the finish line first, but to precisely finish each checkpoint in a pre-determined amount of time. Each vehicle has a driver and a navigator, and the team uses a calibrated speedometer to make sure they stay on schedule, according to the day's route. It's a grand event that turns average car guys into local celebrities, as these classic cars make their way through small towns on their way across the country. Owensboro is thrilled to welcome the Great Race back to downtown in 2024, this time serving as the starting point of the route.
