Flatirons Tuning’s Scott Crouch has chosen the Colorado Rally in Steamboat Springs to make his debut in the driver’s seat of his 2004 Subaru. Although a long time coming, Crouch always knew that he would eventually make the switch from co-driver to driver. “When I first got involved in rally back in 2003 with Tanner Foust, my plan was to learn the sport as a co-driver and make the move to driver after a year or two. I fell in love with co-driving, so my two-year plan got extended a bit. I’ve had a blast and been extremely fortunate to ride with amazing drivers. Steamboat is where it all started for me with the COG Rally in 2003, so making my driving debut there makes perfect sense.”

Scott will team up with Steamboat local Lea Croteau, senior instructor at the Bridgestone Winter Driving School. As a seasoned driver herself, this will be Lea’s first time in the co-driver’s seat at a rally. “Scott and I are excited about competing in our home state at the Colorado Rally in Steamboat Springs. We have mutually beneficial experience in motorsports, and our plan is to have fun, be safe, and learn from our new roles.”
