Great Race Shine Time Car Show

June 30, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The 2019 Great Race will conclude its 2,300-mile journey at ACM on Sunday, June 30! Show off your collector vehicle at the Shine Time Car Show and enter to win an award or come as a spectator and check out the vehicles on display. The Shine Time Car Show is FREE fun for the whole family…you won’t want to miss the hundreds of collector cars, “Taste of the Race” food truck festival & Thirst Responder beer garden, vendors and more! Bring you picnic blankets and lawn chairs for festival seating!

“Taste of the Race” Food Trucks:

Great events don’t happen by accident and they certainly don’t happen in the blink of an eye. It takes a lot of work to develop, organize and run an intricate event such as the Great Race, and it took a lot of work behind the scenes to get it off the ground. From the inaugural event in ’83, there have been lots of memorable moments. We’re looking forward to making more memories at America’s Car Museum, the official finish of the Great Race!

NOTE: The Museum will open early at 9 am for the Shine Time Car Show on June 30. The Great Race official finish at America’s Car Museum will be between 1:30 – 3:30pm.
