Heading into the season with many improvements, Tached-Out Racing driver and owner Corey Salsbery and his co-driver Mike Milos finished a very successful season at the Mt. Hood Rally on October 20th. They came into Mt. Hood riding high from a successful Olympus rally, where they finished with two seconds in the regionals, pushing them into a 13-point lead in the Northwest Regional Open Light Championship standings.

At Mt. Hood’s championship start, Tached-Out’s starting order was behind the second place car and they started tentatively because of weather conditions and some suspension updates. Despite giving away 15 seconds to the competition, their handling confidence grew stronger and started stage two in attack mode. In the middle stage, a mechanical failure forced the competition off to the side and Tached-Out passed them to seize the Northwest Regional points championship.

“The rest of the morning progressed well,” said Corey. “Our notes were working great and, going into the mid-day service, our next goal was to bring home our first class win at rally.”

Checking scores at service, Tached-Out found themselves 12 seconds behind in second. They had been trading times with a car further back in the start order, so they decided to go out on the afternoon loop and go hard.

“The last three stages felt very good,” said Mike. “We rolled into the final control, then service, and everyone came over to the car to congratulate us!”

Tached-out achieved their first class win, a regional championship, and moved up to the fifth-fastest car in the rally! And they are looking forward to trading times with all the Open Light class competitors at rallies next year.

Corey and Mike both acknowledged their Service Team, without which the Mt. Hood rally would not have been a success. “Thanks to Kyle, Nic, Jeff, Kevin and members of Lawrence's service crew that pitched in. Thanks also to PREracing for their ongoing support this year.”

In preparation for next season, Tached-Out Racing is actively looking for additional sponsors. If you are interested in jumping onboard with this successful new team, please contact them on
