Great Race 2021 Day 7 Recap: Lexington, KY to Beckley, West Virginia
June 26, 2021
We're still making progress on the 2021 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty Drivers Club! Today, we crossed into West Virginia, and navigated lots of twists and turns on our way to an excellent hosted lunch stop in Huntington, West Virginia. From there, we really tackled the turns, as we headed toward New River Gorge National Park. We drove across the bridge, and then made the loop beneath the bridge to see the extremely narrow winding road that leads down to the bottom of the gorge. It was incredible! Then we made the trip to Beckley, West Virginia for our evening stop. Both of our stops today were very well attended! The evening stop had live music and the party kept going long after we packed up and headed for the hotel. Currently, Team Coker Tire (Gary and Jean Ann Martin) are in second place overall, fighting a tough battle with several other Coker Tire-equipped cars and trucks. In fact, the top 5 teams are riding on Coker Tire products! Tomorrow we cross into Virginia and North Carolina...stay tuned!
