Congratulations to the Central Magnet School team who participated in The Great Race. On Sunday (6/30/2019) afternoon Bonnie, the green 1953 Pontiac Chieftain, pulled across the finish line in Tacoma, Washington.
Central Magnet School's SRO Sgt. Scott Culp drove the classic Pontiac on the 2,300-mile course while students navigated.
The race was not for speed, but it was a time/speed/distance rally, and sponsored by Hemmings Motor News. In reality, it is a timed speed endurance race for vintage vehicles that are 1974 and older.
The 2019 GREAT RACE started last Saturday (6/22/2019) in Riverside, California and continued for 2,300 miles to Tacoma, Washington. It ended at 1:30PM Sunday (6/30/209) afternoon in Tacoma.
