2017 Great Race

Join the Race! - 2017 Great Race....



The Great Race  2017 - June 24 - July 2, 2017


A timed, controlled speed, navigation, endurance rally for vintage cars. This year Habitat is joining forces with veteran local Nevada County racers Bill and Carolyn Croker in their 1936 Packard. Habitat’s race team is striving to win ACES to raise funds, and challenges other Habitat supporters to join by making a pledge.

What is an ACE?


ACES are very desirable and very difficult to achieve. A typical race has 50 driving sections that are timed. A perfect score on a segment is awarded an ACE. NO maps, GPS, or odometers. Teams are allowed to use only cryptic route instructions, a special speedometer, and a stop watch. Our team has typically achieved 4 to 6 ACES in past races. Please pledge an amount per ACE. You can put a cap on your total donation - or just let it “ride” to however many ACES the team attains.

Make a Pledge per ACE !
Those who pledge become part of our race team! You will receive daily updates from the road on team
progress, stories, photos, and reports on funds raised from ACES achieved along the way. After completion of the race, we will report to you on total number of ACES won, your pledge amount, and total funds raised.
