Photo by: Rusty Probst Cheraw, South Carolina, USA Driver Chris Greenhouse and codriver Danny Norkus fought through tremendous adversity and nagging mechanical difficulties long enough to steal the 2WD win at Sandblast Rally 2018. The team had to come back from an early penalty for illegal service before the first stage had started. To make matters worse, the delay in getting to the first stage also moved them to the back of the start order which forced them to drive on a much rougher stage than the lead cars and required them…Read More

Some have said to be careful what you wish for as more power is dangerous and could bring back the tragedies from the days of Group B. In the simplest of terms that is in fact…Read More

The other reason is that the series showed remarkable improvement as the season went on with ever improving track designs and better racing between drivers. If this season is…Read More
