Stage 2 & Stage 3
The Great Race Stage 2 evening stop in Sudbury, Ontario started with a rain so hard I thought the big ole raindrops would knock me out as I thundered up to the venue at the A & W in my Shafer 8. Despite the short rain, we had a wonderful crowd to welcome the Great Racers. Motormouth is already losing his voice some because of demands of introducing our wonderful sponsors and participants to the crowds. My Grandpa-in-Law Vernon Cunningham and his son, (my Son-in-Law) Greg Cunningham apparently had the best raw score but were (old car'd...the older the car the better the discount off ur score) putting them In 2nd place for the Stage 2 of the 2012 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty!
Parry Sound Ontario was Stage 3, It was in high 40's that morning! Pulled out a polarlite to wear! All the Great Racers were bundled up too as they left for the start.
This morning while everyone was rallying, I pulled off the route in a small town in Ontario to buy a biscuit and a coffee at a McDonalds. There was a guy standing in front of me turns around and looks at me funny (I didn't remember farting or anything offensive). He said "you're Corky Coker". His name is Ross and as soon as he finishes his M code car, he wants some Wide Ovals! Go get em Ross from Ontario! We've seen some might fine scenery while driving through Canada. The Lake of Two Rivers on way to Barry's Bay, Ontario is one of them. The cars are rallying through some of the absolute most beautiful country I have seen.
