Manassas Dodge/KIA/Subaru of Manassas (www.manassasdodge.com) has agreed to sponsor the 2001 National Capitol RallyCross Series being held by the Washington, DC Region of the Sports Car Club of America (www.perfrally.wdcr-scca.com). This is the second year, and first full season, that DC Region has held RallyCross events. "We are very pleased to be associated with Subaru of Manassas," said Dave Shindle, Performance Rally Competition Chair for DC Region. In addition to lending their support towards grassroots motorsports, Subaru of Manassas will bring demonstration and display vehicles to the events.

RallyCross is a hybrid of autocross and Performance Rally. Imagine an autocross on dirt, or a scaled-down version of a Performance Rally stage, laid out on a non-paved plot of land where the course is marked by traffic cones instead of trees. RallyCross is the fastest growing aspect of DC Region's motorsports activities and is a logical first step for an aspiring Performance Rally competitor. There are classes for most vehicles and competitors are only required to be licensed drivers.

DC Region's next RallyCross event is June 24, 2001 at a venue yet to be determined. For information on how to compete, contact Dave Shindle at (301)484-9673 or dcrallydave@yahoo.com
