2014 Rally in the 100 Acre Wood

RLY_DL_100AW_05 The second stop of the Rally America Championship brought us to Salem, MO for the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood. Contrast to the snowy and icy race last year, the weather stayed warm and dry for the most part resulting in the fast and tight roads this rally is known for. Among the usual suspects were last year’s 100AW winners, David Higgins and Craig Drew of Subaru Rally Team USA as well as Rockstar Energy Drink Rally Team’s Antoine L’Estage and Marshall Clarke, along with FY Racing’s Adam Yeoman and Jordan Schulze. However, most of the buzz in the air was regarding the return of two of the biggest names in action sports, Ken Block and Travis Pastrana. While Hoonigan Racing’s Ken Block, a six-time winner at the 100AW rally looks to battle for a 7th win that eluded him last year, Pastrana returns with Subaru Rally Team USA after a three year hiatus and is looking to hit the ground running despite going into the rally recovering from a broken leg. Check out the images below to see who came out on top. RLY_DL_100AW_02 Subaru Rally Team USA teammates David Higgins and Travis Pastrana makes their way into Parc Expose on Day 1.

RLY_DL_100AW_08 Antoine L'Estage moved up as high as second place before overheating issues forced him to retire on day two. RLY_DL_100AW_09 Even after suffering a flat tire, David Higgins and Craig Drew completed day one just 20 seconds behind Ken Block - very much within striking distance. RLY_DL_100AW_10 Flying out of the gates were Ken Block and Alex Gelsomino who never gave up the lead from the first stage onward. 100AW was the debut of the much-anticipated 2014 livery on the Hoonigan Racing Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. Very interesting... RLY_DL_100AW_11 Another notable mention on interesting livery was Super Production class winner Nick Roberts sporting a full plaid wrap. RLY_DL_100AW_12 Pastrana's STI comes in for service. He would finish day one in 4th place. RLY_DL_100AW_13 Ken Block looks to add to his lead at the start of day two. RLY_DL_100AW_14 David Higgins and Craig Drew were looking to put up a fight on the second day of the rally, but instead ended the race with an uncharacteristic DNF due to engine issues. RLY_DL_100AW_15 With the retirements of Higgins and L'Estage, Pastrana and co-driver Chrissie Beavis would finish the rally with a 2nd place podium.
