It what proved to be an amazing race weekend, Travis Pastrana has taken the Olympus Rally in Aberdeen Washington. After day 1 it looked like teammate Ken Block was the man to beat, however a turbo failure early in day 2 all but ended his chances. Andrew Comrie-Picard and his NOS energy Evolution took the runner up position. This is a great boost for his title chances as he separates himself from Tanner Foust. Foust who finished third had a transmission issue on day 1, but Foust’s skills teamed with his Monster Energy drink Evo X were able to salvage a podium finish. With that Podium, Foust is still very much in contention with ACP for the series title after three rounds.
