Rally America and Global RallyCross news..
 
So, I don't know how many of you guys follow Rally America or the newly spawned Rallycross (last year was the first year for RallyCross).

But, the shocker of the week is that Dave Mirra looks to not be running Rally America this year. David Higgins is back to defend his Championship in a 2012 SRT USA/VT Sports Car prepared STI.

The good news is that Dave Mirra is concentrating his efforts in the RallyCross events this year. Since some of the dates conflict and Rally Cross is up to 7 rounds of competition (5 of them not being X Games related) this year. Also, if the news on Rally Cross's website was correct. Then it looks like Travis Pastrana and Ken Block will be new to the series. Which I would think means they will run more than just the X Games events this year. Interesting indeed...I'd guess Block would run his fiesta again and Pastrana might be Mirra's team mate. Also, ESPN or ESPN2 will air every RallyCross event this year and it will be live action as well.

I did rally back when SCCA still had it...Kind of miss it, but would rather do road course more now...

You should attend the Wellsboro Rally America event this year Keith. LOL...I shouldn't have to meet Nasioc members that I don't talk to there. I meet a few Nasioc members last year and the one guy was from NY and he was friendly. I met him on the stages.

When and where is it? I can't find it on the site...

[url=http://rally-america.com/index.php]Rally America[/url] Its on the home page on the left side. Wellsboro, PA Which is like a 3 hour drive for me to get there. Its up by the NY border and is near Mansfield, PA. It is June 1-2. But, I'll probably get up there May 31st later in the day.

Can't that's the weekend of the Warrior Dash. Not missing it for anything... Are there any others that might be close?

turmic 01-23-2012 06:19 PM

Not national events....I don't go to the regional events. So, eh...it was worth a try and good luck at the dash. ;)

Its maybe an hour or so for me, may have to request it off so you can meet up with me.....although I am a member of NASIOCROFL

Hershey Park is about 45 mins away from me. So, I could definitely do that.

I miss Hershey Park. Its a little more than 45 minutes away for me, sorry guys, lol.

BLAZE2099 01-24-2012 08:18 PM

psinuse 01-24-2012 09:20 PM

Well then once I get a few things sorted out we should just have a mini Hersey Park meet...woo-hoo

turmic 01-24-2012 10:48 PM

Haha, maybe a good idea. This thread has turned into a who wants to meet up thread. !Laugh!
