Ken Block Wins, Travis Pastrana Rolls, at 100 Acre Wood Rally

For the fourth year in a row Subaru Rally Team USA driver Ken Block has won the 100 Acre Wood Rally in Salem Missouri. The course is particularly suited to Block's flat-out style. He was quoted on Rally America as saying “I love the flow of the stages of this event,... I love the high speeds.”

NOS Energy’s Andrew Comrie-Picard finished in second place in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX. Rockstar Energy’s Tanner Foust took third in his new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.

Subaru Rally Team USA team mate Travis Pastrana really wanted to challenge Block for the top spot on the podium saying prior to the race “I’m going to drive like a bat out of hell until I either hit something, or we catch Ken,” Unfortunately for Travis he rolled it on day 1 and was unable to continue. To riff on the Subaru jingle, "that's what makes a Pastrana, a Pastrana"

Subaru Rally Team USA is run by Vermont SportsCar of Colchester, VT. The 100 Acre Wood Rally is round two of the Rally America Championship.

Here's some video of the 2009 100 Acre Wood Rally that I found on YouTube.

bwahahaha!; "that's what makes a Pastrana, a Pastrana"! -I like that!

Vermont needs our own Rally event that draws these sort of drivers and crowds...

Bob Kilpatrick

Agreed, but for now the New England Forest Rally will have to do. I hope to head over there on July 17-18 to see these guys in action and maybe get to meet a few of them.
