Subaru wins at my Home
Earlier, David Higgins set off through that winding road setting a record that would be tough to beat. Travis Pastrana had set a record just before David... so both are now nipping at the heels of their previous success. Mix in the fact that the record was set with a lighter, less restrictive class car... and this year's event made for a harrowing challenge to the returning record-holder. Teams scaled the mountain all weekend making passes and attempts on this dangerous road, gaining points in this special round of the RallyAmerica series. In the end, David somehow managed to beat his previous record to win the event and leave a new number to beat. 6 Minutes, 11.5 Seconds. This week's episode of Launch Control covers this event, but there's another win for Subaru Rally Team USA that hits home again!
New England Forest Rally puts Subaru in my neck-of-the-woods and adds to their victorious tour of the area. A 1st Place win for Higgins/Drew and a 2nd Place finish for Pastrana/Beavis secured more than just top points for the team. This win mathematically locks Higgins as the RallyAmerica Champion for the 2014 season, as well as the Manufacturers Title for Subaru.
