The American Rally Association, represented by national DirtFish champion Travis Pastrana, took first place in the Oregon Trail Rally when Kyle Tilly dropped out of the opening of the super special stage.
As traditional, the three-day event in Oregon began with two stages at the Portland International Raceway, but the contender for the RC2 Tilly did not even pass first.
They often say you can’t win a rally on a superspecial, but you can certainly lose it, and he learned it at his own expense when he rolled his Ford Fiesta R5 on the SS1 and damaged it, which is beyond repair. Therefore, he will no longer participate in the action this weekend.
In the lead, Pastrana of Subaru Motorsports USA won the start of the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC with Ken Block, but a great run on the second pass for the first time this season put Pastrana in the lead overnight – 3.2 seconds from Block.
