Teenage Boy Wins Great Race, With Help from Grandpa

This image was lost some time after publication.

So after a trek over hill and dale, and through what one competitor called a "Hot, windy, dusty. And long" trail through Kansas, the Great Race's competitors convened in San Rafael (That's "San Rafell" to you non-NorCal types) to crown this year's victor. The winner? None other than driver David Reeder and his navigatior and thirteen-year-old grandson, Sawyer Stone in a 1916 Hornet. Despite whacking a cow which knocked their front end out of alignment in Tonopah, NV, the twosome managed to out-time, out-speed and out-distance their competitors from Philly to Marin County, and picked up a cool hundred-thou to split between them.
