I posted this back in November but our 80 slots were full by mid December since that time 6 spots opened up (a few had to drop out for personal reasons) for this years Rally and I thought I would pass this along for your consideration OR if we are in a town near you we would love it if you would cheer us on as we pass through.


Rally North America’s “2011 Rally Appalachia” July 18-21, 2011

1300 miles along some of the most scenic roads in the country, surrounded by eighty plus sports cars, muscle cars, and other unique rides, searching for secret check points at incredible places; this is Rally Appalachia.”

Established in the winter of 2009, Rally North America is a non-for-profit organization, aimed at bringing automotive enthusiasts from all over the United States and Canada, together to do to one thing: rallying. While other large rallies require unjustifiably high costs to enter and participate in; Rally North America or RNA, makes road rallies fun and affordable for everyone. Each rally organized by Rally North America, emphasizes one key idea: driving for a cause. There are several charities and non-profit organizations that give back to their causes. RNA believes that by combining the love for the automotive lifestyle and helping those in need, it is possible to do something “good” with the automotive hobby.

Rally North America is fortunate to benefit from the professional film work of TJ Fry and The MOB Theory, who continue to document these road rallies. There are also a vast amount of large-scale sponsors who help contribute to Rally North America’s road rallies including CJ Pony Parts, Hagerty Collector Car Insurance, Penn Tech Deployments, Hooters of Greenville SC, and

RNA is back at it again this July of 2011 with another exciting rally, open to all car enthusiasts. Get ready to drive through the mountains and along the coast, as we ramble on through the 2011 Rally Appalachia! All makes and models of vehicles are welcome on this exclusive VIP scavenger-hunt event.
