|This pin dates back to 1986 when the race was run from Disneyland, California, to New York. On later edition pins, the destination was changed to Walt Disney World(pin #1266). It depicts a yellow, and red race car, with the number "1" on the side, and grill, in front of a red, white and blue map of the United States. There are a driver and co-driver in the car. The inscription, on the front says, "THE(in black, surrounded with a blue oval), GREAT AMERICAN(in red,surrounded in blue), and RACE"(in red). There are two, crossed checkered flags above the word "RACE" with the numbers "19" on the left, and "86" on the right of the flags. The start, and finish cities, are written, on the map, in their locations. Beneath the map, it says, "INTERSTATE-BATTERIES" in green. This smooth-backed, gold-finished, thick epoxy-coated pin measures 1 5/16" in diameter and has no backstamp. This pin is similar to pin #1266 with the exceptions of the hump at the top of the pin, the year, the destination city of the race, and possibly, the size.
