Smithsonian's “Race to the Museum” Winners Arrive Friday

The public chooses museum display

The votes are in for the Smithsonian’s “Race to the Museum" initiative.

The winners -- the 1929 Miller race car and the 1948 Tucker sedan -- are currently being prepped for the National Museum of American History.

For the first time, the Smithsonian asked the public to help pick two cars for display at the museum. More than 24,000 people voted.

The cars arrive on Friday, Jan. 21, and  will be on display at the museum from Jan. 22 to Feb. 21.
