The 2021 Rally-X season went without a hitch and we are excited to announce the 2022 Schedule!
This year, our Rally-X course will be utilizing elements from the Nitro Rallycross course that was hosted here at The FIRM in December 2021. Come out and experience the rally-x of a lifetime, running on the same course that professional drivers like Travis Pastrana, Scott Speed, Steve Arpin, Tanner Foust and NASCAR champion Chase Elliot ripped through! Challenge yourself with multiple surface changes, hairpins, a trip through the woods, around our road course and through the air with new jumps (excluding the infamous gap jump).
A series champion will be determined in each group at the end of event 4. A prize ceremony is tentatively scheduled after the completion of Event 4.
