New York Winter Rally 2010 is a brand new snow and gravel rally that has become the first round of the 2010 United States Rally Championship. Each day is also a separate round of the New York Rally Championship.

This is for the first time ever in North America that studded tires are authorized on a National Championship rally. Competitors will be able to use off the shelf snow and ice tires equipped with tire studs commonly available for passenger cars and light trucks.

Two-pass reconnaissance and pace notes are also authorized same as on any other previous Rally New York event during the last five years.

A prize fund guarantees that each team in top 30 percent of finishers, including at least one production car and at least one two-wheel-drive car, will win $200 in prize money.

The two-day New York Winter Rally 2010 will utilize a new compact schedule. Registration will start on Friday in late afternoon instead of customary Wednesday night. Two-pass reconnaissance will be performed on Saturday morning. Racing will start on Saturday afternoon and the rally will end on Sunday in mid-afternoon. The rally takes place only 90 miles northwest of New York City and is run according to international FIA regulations.
