DuPont Custom Finishes sponsors The Great Race
May 13, 2011—DuPont Custom Finishes was named as the official sponsor of The Great Race.
The Great Race is a vintage and collector car competitive rally based on precision driving and navigational skills. Contestants will travel more than 1,000 miles from Coker Tire Company’s headquarters in Chattanooga, Tenn. to the Hemmings Motor News headquarters in Bennington, Vt., according to DuPont.
The competition, which will be held June 11-17, is in seven timed, controlled-speed, endurance rally stages. Each vehicle must follow a prescribed route across county, state and U.S. highways, while attempting to maintain assigned average speeds, according to DuPont.
Vehicle entries must have been manufactured in 1969 or earlier. Two people are required for each competing vehicle.
“DuPont is proud to support The Great Race, which combines the precision and skill of rally driving with an appreciation of vintage vehicles,” said Harry Christman, brand manager for DuPont Custom Finishes. “Serving as the official finish is a perfect fit with the DuPont Custom Finishes offering of OEM and custom color paint products.”
