Travis Pastrana Wins ARA Championship in an Epic Comeback

August 29, 2017

A season-long battle for the 2017 American Rally Association Championship came to a close last weekend at the Ojibwe Forests Rally. Travis Pastrana and co-driver Robbie Durant overcame a five-point deficit behind Subaru Rally Team USA teammate and summer-long rival David Higgins and co-driver Craig Drew in the sixth and final round of the series. Travis and Robbie needed to do more than win the race — a straight win would have resulted in a tie in points. They had to win enough rally stages to put them ahead of David and Craig in points, which are earned over the course of the season. By the end of the first day, things were already looking tougher, as Travis had gone through six of his 10 tires allotted for the entire rally. But the Red Team persevered and in the end had just enough to bring home the big win. Both Subaru teammates and their co-drivers had incredible performances in the series, and rally fans can look forward to seeing more pyrotechnics from them in the future.
