The Great Race coming to South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Over 150 vintage automobiles will arrive at the Studebaker National Museum and The History Museum on June 22 as a part of the 2022 edition of the Great Race, a competitive controlled-speed endurance driving competition.

The museums will serve as a lunch checkpoint during the nine-day, 2,300-mile journey starting in Warwick, Rhode Island, on June 18 and ending in Fargo, North Dakota on June 26.

It will be the first time since 1994 that South Bend will welcome these vintage cars, some of which date back as far as 1916.

Every stop on the race is free to the public and spectators will be able to speak with the participants and get a first-hand look at the vehicles. Those who wish to view exhibits at the museums may purchase tickets.

The cost for adults is $16, seniors pay $13 and youth ages 6-17 cost $9.
