How many different rallies have been held in Michigan? I know of Graylings 20 stages, POR, LSPR, Magnum Opus and Sno-Drift, what were the others. When were they run? Why are they not run now? Just wondering on a snowy Sunday in Grand Rapids and looking at my Gazateer that has roads marked from the events that I know about. There is a mess of great roads in the Northern part of the lower Pennisula. Just curious.

There were several Marathons run out of Traverse City about 1974 - 1975. There was at least one rally out of Cadilac. Allegro ran out of Gaylord for at least one year about 1976.

In the early 1970s, the Moonlight Monte used to be run about one month prior to the POR, as a shakedown for the POR. In many ways, it was just as good, or better, than the POR. It was the first event to run stages in the UP. It would be equivalent to one of today's SCCA Pro Rally events.

Magnum Opus ( Munising) 98, 2000,2002 Seem to missing from this list. I also think that a LacVieux ( or 2) from Marquette are missing.
It was frightening to figure out how many of those events I was at- all but POR, 72 and 73, Sno-Drift 73,74 and Marathon 400, 74.

How about the Dire Straits of Mackinaw Rally?? I ran fast sweep at the 86 edition and drug Uncle Joe Andreini around it in a 90hp Omni in 87 (my first-ever rally in a FWD car).
