Hare-Hound-Course-8-22-13This weekend, Round 9 of the FMF/GPR AMA National Hare & Hound Championship Series takes place in eastern Nevada and is hosted by the Silver State Trailblazers.  This is the second running of the MULEY RUN in Panaca, NV, and has quickly become a favorite among the racers!

The 100-mile point-to-point event will start at the local fairgrounds in Panaca with the racers finishing in Caliente.  The host club has a lot of festivities planned for this weekend, starting on Friday evening.  This event is very unique in that not only will you receive your National points, but you can receive either D37 or MRAN points as well.

The AMA Youth National Series will take place on Saturday morning starting at 7:00am with a 12-mile loop for the minis and a 1-mile loop for the pee wees.

The new Rally America National Championship season will launch into the freezing winter of Northern Michigan at the end of the month. The Sno*Drift Rally January 28-29th will slide amongst the trees and frozen roads in Atlanta and Lewiston, Michigan! The images are post card beautiful. The stories are best-seller dramatic.

The hot competition always heats up Sno*Drift’s frigid temperatures. Returning for the 2011 season is the Subaru Rally Team USA with BMX Legend and X Games star, Dave Mirra, and a new driver familiar to longtime rally fans, Britain’s David Higgins. Higgins is the 2004 British Rally Champion and the replacement in the seat left vacant by action sports star Travis Pastrana, who announced last month he’ll participate in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series. Higgins brings exceptional rally experience to the team having won the 2002-2003 SCCA ProRally Championships and is considered an instant top challenger for an American championship again.
