Minneapolis, Minn. (Mar. 23, 2005) -- As part of its continuing effort to raise the professional standards of rallying in the United States, Rally America has recently signed on with SFI as a member sanctioning body.

"We are looking forward to a long relationship with SFI and we are very proud to be a member sanctioning body," says Rally America spokesman J.B. Niday.

Rally America joins other noted sanctioning members including NASCAR, the Champ Car World Series and the Indy Racing League.

The SFI Foundation is a non-profit organization established to issue and administer standards for specialty and performance automotive and racing equipment.

Member sanctioning bodies agree to follow stringent specifications within their rulebooks.

SFI and Mike Hurst, Rally-America's technical director, are currently developing a standardized test to certify Rally America scruitineers, ensuring the highest degree of safety and consistency at every event.

The Rally America, Inc., based in Minneapolis, Minn., holds the sanctioning and marketing rights to the Rally America Championship
