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.

Lake Superior Performance Rally

Welcome to the 2011 Lake Superior Rally

Welcome to the 2011 Lake Superior Rally in Houghton, Michigan.  It is pouring rain with a brisk wind, could it really be any other way for a rally in the Upper Peninsula?

Cars are out running the first two spectator stages just outside Houghton.  We have not yet had a chance to interview any drivers or see any scores, so we'll try to get some updates from the service area in Kenton later this afternoon.  We may not have internet access in Kenton, so updates may be kind of sporadic.

Interviews from Parc Expose

Parc Expose Interviews

Jim Cox, Driver, #558 Chevrolet S10

BB: Jim, you don't see too many rally trucks out there. What made you interested in rallying a pickup?
JC: I guess the "repairability" has made it something that's been affordable for us. We don't really run it for a performance advantage, but it's a good formula for us to have a good time.
BB: When was the last time you ran LSPR?
JC: I think '07 was my last LSPR.
BB: Do you have any goals or aspirations for the weekend?
