Registration is open for this year’s United States Road Rally Challenge, sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America®. The multi-day event takes place in Alaska and will begin on Friday, September 15 and travel from the Anchorage hillside to Girdwood, the Hope Highway, and lodge in Seward. Saturday will see the teams traveling to Homer, before the event’s end on Sunday, September 17 in Kasilof.
Fifty years ago, there was a Road Rally for the 100th Celebration of the Cessation of Alaska from Russian — and this year’s USRRC is to celebrate that 1967 Road Rally, raise awareness of the International Motor Racing Research Center SCCA Rally archives, and celebrate Alaska's Sesquicentennial!
Currently, teams from Florida, Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia, Michigan, California, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Alaska have registered for this year’s challenge. The event was laid out for both Cheechako Class (Stock) to Sourdough Class (Equipped), so no prior experience in the sport is needed.
