Williston, VT (July 28, 2016) – Rally America is announcing today that it will be running the Rally America National Championship in 2017 just as it has since 2005. 

Rally America will be working with USAC for insurance and licensing.  We appreciate our partnership and the professionalism that USAC brings to rally and we plan to continue this strong partnership for some time to come. 

Rally America is going to continue to work toward the future with its partner event organizers, focusing on sport awareness, strong competition in every class and economic benefit to the host towns in which we race.  We plan on putting forth the required effort towards improved communications and compromise as we close any gaps together.  All rally fans will reap the rewards of our combined successes. 

Rally America’s staff has been and will continue to be thoughtful stewards of the sport of rally and helpful to all those that come to participate.  This includes competitors, organizers, volunteers, sponsors and the media.   We will continue to foster and improve good relations with local, state and federal organizations through improved PR and sport education.

Rally America has strong, supportive sponsors who believe, as we do, that rally has the most desirable demographic in automotive motorsports and we thank them for their continued participation.

Rally America does not have any form of partnership with nor does it have any transition plan with any other organizations hoping to provide sanction in the sport of Rally.  

Rally America is looking forward to its two remaining events in the 2016 Rally America National Championship: Ojibwe Forests Rally, August 26th, 27th in Detroit Lakes, MN and Lake Superior Performance Rally, October 14th, 15th in Houghton, MI.  We’re expecting battles in all classes at both events and large spectator turn out as usual.   Stay tuned for more updates to come.

Rally America has a storied history that must be appreciated, protected and taken forward with great enthusiasm and excitement.  It’s that history and those racers, organizers and volunteers that have been involved during the past 30 years who will foster new participants giving the sport its best chance for an even brighter future. 

ABOUT RALLY AMERICA: Rally competition can be simply described “real cars, real roads, real fast.” It’s an all-season motorsport that sees drivers and their co-drivers take modified road cars to the limit as they achieve blistering speeds over courses that cover more than 100 miles of gravel, dirt or snow-covered roads. Based in Williston, Vermont, Rally America, Inc., sanctions the Rally America National Championship, which consists of eight national-level events in 2016 from Portland, Oregon, to Newry, Maine.
