Rally car race in Crawford, Dent and Washington Counties on March 18-19, 2016. This is round two of the Rally America National Championship and features rally teams from across the country, and sometimes the world.
The cars race against the clock, one minute apart on gravel county roads. The headquarters is in Salem but most racing is between Steelville and Potosi on Friday and closer to Salem on Sunday.
If you have never been to a rally before you probably don’t know what to expect your first time out, but you are bound to be hooked when the weekend is over.
Before you head out for the day this is what you can expect to see. Each day begins with a Parc Expose, rally lingo for Car Show. Here you can walk around and see the cars up close and even ask for your favorite driver’s autograph. Don’t forget your camera!
Midway through each day, teams are given one or two timed service breaks in Steelville or Salem. The service crews must make any repairs or changes to the cars within the allotted time.
If watching the cars in action is your top goal for the weekend, multiple spectator locations are available, with many offering multiple passes at the same spot. Spectator guides will be posted on our website a couple of weeks before the event.
