Tucker No. 1039 Takes Second Place in the "Race to the Museum"

Tucker No. 1039
The polls have closed and Tucker No. 1039 took second place (with 28.5% of the vote) in the Smithsonian's "Race to the Museum," following up the 1929 Miller race car (which garnered 42.8%).  Nearly 24,000 votes were cast during the 3 weeks that the polls were open.  Click here for more details about the final outcome of this poll.

The Tucker and the Miller will both be placed on public display at the National Museum of American History on the Mall in Washington, DC from January 22, 2011, to February 21, 2011.  If you have a chance, go see Tucker No. 1039 during this rare public display.
