Franklin welcomes Great Race

Submitted Tue, 06/26/2012 - 7:27am by Andy Alm

The Great Race – the annual antique car competition – is coming to Franklin for the first time.  The classic car rally will make a lunch stop on Friday from 11:50 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.

As they motor thousands of miles in nine days around the Great Lakes, 92 vintage race cars including some from Pennsylvania will make a lunch stop to help celebrate Franklin’s 4th of July Festivities Week.  This is their only stop in Pennsylvania.

The race began on Saturday in Traverse City, Michigan, and ends July 1 in Dearborn, Michigan.  The oldest car in this year’s race is a 1911 Hudson, and the newest is a 1969 Jaguar.
