Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

The 2016 Race of Gentlemen East: Two Days of Sand, Sun and Speed

Kevin Carlson, Race of Gentlemen regular, owner of the Sassafras Special and friend of Hemmings, passed on a bit of wisdom about the now bi-coastal event. “Sometimes you finish first and sometimes you finish second,” Kevin told us, “but here, there are no losers.”

There are no egos, either. At the hotel on Friday night, Ray Evernham walked up to the Hemmings crew, shook our hands and thanked us for supporting the race. The next day, the NASCAR legend (and current host of Velocity’s AmeriCarna) was on the beach in his 1924 Model T roadster, just another racer doing it for the sheer joy of running fast on the sand.

Willie G. Davidson, grandson of Harley-Davidson cofounder William A. Davidson and the company’s former chief styling officer, was on hand to meet the crowd and watch his family’s bikes dice it up with arch-rival Indian. Aaron Kaufman, the lead wrench on television’s Fast N’ Loud, even took a few passes down the beach, both on four wheels and on two.

Excellent photos and anecdotes from the 2016 Race of Gentlemen in Wildwood.
