Noble Star Rally is a Michigan based grassroots rally team comprised of a large family of team members located in various states throughout the country.  Lead by driver Amanda Skelly and Co-Driver Derrick Rudisel, the team participates in stage rallies sanctioned by Rally America and NASA Rally Sport throughout the United States, as well Detroit Region SCCA rally cross and TSD (Time Speed Distance) Road Rallies in their home state.
Driving in a 1998 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS Coupe, Amanda and Derrick are competing in the Open Light classes which include only naturally aspirated AWD vehicles. The team debuted at the 2012 Sno*Drift Rally in Atlanta, MI just 3 short months after gutting the rally car and beginning their build.  Since their debut, the team has appeared in various press releases, newspaper articles and has been featured in a full length episode of Subiesport TV which premiered in December 2012 titled: “Living The Dream” and in Rally America’s National TV Show on NBC Sports which aired on April 5, 2014.
Noble Star Rally believes in reaching out to the community. Along with SubaRoots Rally, NSR is able to promote noble actions, positive attitudes and the ability and knowledge to follow ones dreams.  Matthew Noble Marker encouraged everyone, regardless of age or gender, to take an interest in racing and to live their dream.  His charisma fueled by a love for the sport left marks on all who crossed his path.  Like the cars that he had built from the ground up, Matthew founded SubaRoots Rally comprised of friends, family and anyone that shared the same energy, love and passion for rally.  Today the team shares the same passion and love for rally and are working hard to share and pass on Matthew’s legacy.

Special thanks goes out to their amazing crew and teammates who have helped the car get to where it is today.
