MaxAttack! raised the level of two wheel drive rally racing in the United States for the past few years. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsor during those years, Danza del Sol Winery in Temecula Valley, California, the Rallysports Group of America (RSGA) paid out a cash purse of $15,000 USD per year to be divided amongst the fastest teams competing in the MaxAttack! events.

Second Day Of The Oregon Trail Rally

A steady rain, high winds, and foggy conditions in the higher elevations made for some of the most difficult rally conditions.

A steady rain, high winds, and foggy conditions in the higher elevations made for some of the most difficult rally conditions imaginable for the second day of the Oregon Trail Rally. The competitors in the MaxAttack! Triple Crown Rally Series at times felt like they were racing on ice as the mud collected on the roads. Teams had to improvise when windshield wipers broke and foggy windshields were unable to defrost due to humidity. It was truly a difficult task for teams to maintain the focus needed to drive the challenging forest roads at a pace quick enough to stay in the race for the cash payouts.

Nevertheless, the MaxAttack! drivers did not fail to impress spectators that waited for hours in the rain and the cold with spectacular driving. Rally drivers fought through the mud and the fog to put on a great show, drifting their cars around corners exhibiting top notch car control in conditions that would make many people think twice about just venturing out.

The commitment to drive a quick pace did not come without incident for some drivers. Said local favorite Tom Burress, "Rallycars and weeds are a bad combination." The tough conditions had gotten the better of him as he slid off the road. The Burress team is continuing on however. Things can change quickly in a rally like this and no competitors are immune to bad luck.
