Great Race 2021 Day 5 Recap -- Cape Girardeau to Owensboro
June 24, 2021
Day 5 of the 2021 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty Drivers Club kicked off in Missouri and crossed over into Illinois (a surprise to the racers) and then into Kentucky. We saw beautiful farm land before and after lunch, and we experienced a special surprise organized by the Great Race staff. Part of the course instructions sent us to Metropolis, Illinois and it included a photo opp with Superman. After our brief moment in Metropolis, we crossed the Ohio River and made our way to the lunch stop in Paducah, Kentucky. From there, we motored along with great scenery all around us for the afternoon portion of our route. Finally, we reached our overnight stop in Owensboro, Kentucky, where we were swarmed by thousands of spectators who were so happy to welcome us to town. It was another awesome day of Great Racing as we pass the half way point of this year's event!
