South Dakota Hosts 2016 Great Race

Jun 20, 2016

This week a line of vintage, open-faced race cars are taking off on the 2016 Great Race. South Dakotans can experience the car rally at three stops across the state.

Participants of the 34th annual Great Race plan to make stops in Rapid City, Chamberlain and Sioux Falls June 23 and 24. Jeff Stumb is the director of the Great Race. He says this year’s theme is based on the Lincoln highway, but cars will deviate off of that route to visit Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands.
