Prescott, Arizona. (September 24, 2012) The final round of the 2011 United States Rally Championship will be run in the central mountains of Arizona September 28th and 29th where a tight battle for the AWD Championship will be decided. The Atlantic Divisions Joseph Burke and Alvin Fong are tied for first going into the final round with Pacific competitors Ryan Gates and Kris Psara within striking distance if either of the front runners stumbles. Michel Hoche-Mong from California can wrap up the 2WD Championship with a strong finish but John Black in his Ranger is close behind.

The Prescott Rally will take competitors through the historic mining district of Jerome and the ranchlands of the Verde River Valley. A compressed two-day schedule will allow teams to participate in Recce Friday morning, register Friday afternoon, complete the competition stages Friday night and Saturday with awards and prize giving Saturday evening.

Other strong contenders include:

  • Keith Jackson/Marra Estep. This team won the USRC AWD championship in 2009 and knows these roads well.
  • Cem Akdeniz/Mustafa Samli. This duo has been steadily gaining speed and competed at Prescott last year assuring their home event advantage.
  • Kristopher Marciniak/Christine Marciniak. The 2007 USRC 2WD Production Cup Winners have a new Neon to engage the other 2WD teams in what will surely be a great battle.

This year’s event features 120 stage miles over the two day format with activities based at Tim’s Subaru and the Prescottonian Hotel in Prescott, Arizona. Proceeds from this year’s event will help support the Yavapai Humane Society. Sponsors for the event include Scott Roofing of Phoenix, Tim’s Subaru of Prescott along with the Subaru Western Region, The Prescottonian Hotel, Whiskey Row Screen-printing and Morgan Sign. Timing and Scoring are provided by the California Rally Series. Look for live updates throughout the weekend at or and like Prescott Rally on Facebook!
