United States Road Rally Challenge
The United States Road Rally Challenge (USRRC) is a multi-day, multi-event showcase Rally which moves around the country each year and stands as an esteemed event in the RoadRally schedule.
When it started, the USRRC was a three-day, three-event National-level rally with maximum points available which could help propel a competitor towards a national championship. Over time the USRRC has evolved into an event which puts less emphasis on points scoring and more weight toward the experience itself or the historical significance of an event or location.
Previous USRRC events have included a history-filled tour around Washington DC and colonial Virgina in 2014, a visually spectacular route on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska in 2017, and the 50th "Covered Bridge Rally" in 2016. The 2018 USRRC will take place in and around St Louis, Missouri.
Whether your goal is to take advantage of multiple points-scoring days or to take part in the prestige of some of the oldest motorsports events in the country, the USRRC is a desire for many RoadRally participants.
2018 United States RoadRally™ Challenge
October 4 to October 7, St. Louis, Mo.
The St Louis Region will host the 24th edition of the United States RoadRally Challenge (USRRC). The annual event returns to St. Louis, “the Gateway to the West,” Thursday Oct. 4 - Sunday Oct. 7 and will include four different styles of RoadRally.
The event - last held in St Louis in 2005 - will begin with a short nighttime divisional tour Thursday evening, Oct. 4, followed by two daylong national rallies Friday, Oct. 5, and Saturday, Oct. 6 and concludes with a morning divisional Game-Tour-Adventure rally Sunday, Oct. 7, and an awards luncheon.
“In addition to the regular RoadRally classes defined by the Road Rally Rules--Equipped, Limited, and Stock--we will offer two additional classes, Historic and Rookie,” reports event chairman Jim Heine. “They’re designed especially for occasional rally teams, whether historic or modern, or for teams from other SCCA disciplines that might enjoy participating in the USRRC. Also, we’ve designed the weekend so that Historic and Rookie teams can run all four events, or if they choose, just the Saturday and Sunday events.”
Suburban Columbia, Illinois, just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, will serve at the event’s headquarters.
