A friend of mine is participating in the race but he's not driving a Flathead powered vehicle. Lawson, google the Great American Race, it'll give you the route with all the stops.

The great race will make a pit stop in Rome Ga but it is about 25 miles off the Dixie Hwy . One of the participants lives in the outskirts of Rome and they will stop at his farm and workshop around 3:15 Sunday June 25 . Wayne Vick who is driving a 1935 Ford , I hope to see the cars then .

A group of locals are going to park along the route coming into Newnan, the city will shut down the south court square area for race vehicles. This was in the local paper this morning. I think we will have a large number of interested spectators.
