The DiSalvatore family of Yonkers – Silvio, Amy and their teenage sons Mason and Blake – took home the grand prize in last night’s finale of NBC’s “Great American Road Trip.”

They bested six other families who participated in the contest, tackling challenges at each stop along their Route 66 trip from Chicago to Los Angeles. For the last task – deciphering a photo puzzle with clues from locations that they’d previously visited – the DiSalvatores beat the Coote family of Lockport, Ill.
They took home a $100,000 grand prize, plus a year’s worth of free gas, tickets to Universal Studio and plane tickets to anywhere in the U.S.
Congratulations to the DiSalvatores!
