The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum has been selected as a lunch stop for the Hemming’s Motor News Great Race, a cross-country road rally of antique vehicles that will include Iowa 80’s own 1938 Kenworth as the only semi-tractor in the competition.

The Great Race is a time/speed/endurance road rally for vintage automobiles manufactured at least 45 years ago. The 2016 event will be run over nine days starting in San Rafael, Calif., on June 18 and ending on June 26 in Moline, Ill.

Nearly 100 racers will enjoy lunch on the lawn adjacent to the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum on June 26, between 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. The public is invited to view the cars while the racers stop for lunch before heading into downtown Moline, Ill.

Iowa 80 Truckstop hosted fuel stops for the Great Race in 2005 and 2013.

"We ran our 1938 Kenworth in the Great Race for over 10 years in the 1990s and early 2000s, so we know many of the racers and Great Race staff,” said Delia Moon Meier, senior vice president of Iowa 80.  “We are happy to be able to host them for lunch at our museum this year.  We hope to see many familiar faces."

The truck museum at Iowa 80 is a fantastic place.. We spent a half a day there in 2013 and am looking forward to visiting it again next year when the ATHS national show is in Des Moines.
