December 5, 2005 Laughlin, NV - It seemed a gamble for the New Zealand Subaru rallyists Sam Murray and Anton Cheetham along with eight crew members to make their rally bid at the Ramada Express International Rally USA in Laughlin Nevada, just outside Las Vegas.

Team dreams aimed for an win or at least a podium finish in America's longest, toughest rally.

The noise from the team celebration, not to be confused with a sonic boom, is headed from Laughlin toward Palmerston North, New Zealand at lightning speed.
