Vintage roadsters make a pit stop in Dubuque

Posted: Updated:

People lined the streets of the Port of Dubuque Sunday morning to take a look at some vintage cars. More than 90 vintage cars made their way through the port as a part of The Great Race - a controlled race rally that started Saturday in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Brian Goudge travels with the great race as an announcer. He says the race is something to see when it comes into town.

"We lay out a precise set of instructions to the race teams and each day they pick up their instructions thirty minutes prior to the start of their event and if they follow their instructions properly they will arrive here on time and score well." Goudge said.

But sometimes those instructions need to change. Due to the heavy rainfall and flooding in some areas, many cars were late to the Port of Dubuque due to a change in their route.

The Great Race will travel along the Mississippi for another nine days before finishing in Mobile, Alabama.
