HOLLYWOOD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- O'Connell Racing (OConnellRacing.com), a professional motorsports company based in Southern California, announced today that the team with the father-son driver combination of Gus O'Connell and Kevin O'Connell will compete in the 2014 Hemmings Motor News Great Race that will take place (6/21-29) over a week long period starting in downtown Ogunquit, Maine and ending in The Villages, Florida.
The Great Race, established in 1908 with an inaugural race from New York to Paris requires entrants to only race classic, vintage or antique vehicles. The race is considered to be an automotive competition based on precision driving and navigational skills with events that are timed, with controlled speeds and endurance criteria. The 2014 race will include stops in states such as New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia with the finish in Florida.
Kevin O'Connell commented, "This is a new type of racing for us and our #59 entry will campaign an all original 1959 Chevrolet Apache Fleetside pick-up truck. My father and family friends Bill Kohlmeyer and Chris Bensabat are going to start the event in Maine, with family members Fred and Denny Cassin providing race support and logistics. I intend to meet up with the team somewhere along the line and drive for a stint or two after racing in the Gardner Denver 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Road America with Rick Ware Racing."
