The Great Race

The Great Race in Tacoma

June 29-30, 2019

The Great Race is coming to Pierce County! Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty is an automobile enthusiast's dream, with some of the most historic, collectible, awe-inspiring vehicles in the country competing in a timed race from Southern California to Tacoma. 120 vintage vehicles are racing up the West Coast with the final rally and finishes in Tacoma, Washington.
With both the Northwest's largest collection of classic vehicles (LeMay Collections at Marymount) and the largest automotive museum in North America (LeMay - America's Car Museum) calling Pierce County home, it makes sense that the last leg of such an epic race will drive through Pierce County and finish in Tacoma.
