Off-Road and Rally racing driver Bill Holmes and his co-driver Sean Gallagher pulled off another class win and the overall victory at the 2010 Southwest Rally Series, Seed 9 Rally. The event was held in Jean, Nevada November 6, 2010.

The two-wheel-drive Bilstein/BFGoodrich-sponsored 2008 Ford F-150 rally racing truck was the first vehicle starting the event with a good turn out of all-wheel-drive vehicles starting behind in two minute intervals. From the start to the finish the team of Holmes/Gallagher led and won all seven stages of the event. The event started at 4 pm under warm blue desert skies and went into the night, with the first two stages being run in the daylight and the other five stages being run in the darkness. As the sun fell over the desert mountains the monsoon thunder clouds came in and opened up the skies with large rain drops and a very spectacular lightning show, Bill said after the event, “The lighting was so bright and close that the flashes of lighting were just a little brighter than my 10 HID KC Hilites on the truck.”

The Seed 9 Rally happened immediately after the SEMA show in Las Vegas, NV, where the truck was on display all week.

The 2010 season ended and Bill Holmes is second in the 2010 California Rally Series Championship group 5 class (open 2wd) and 7th in the United States Rally Championship (Open 2wd).
