The American Rally Association (ARA) has released its 2019 season schedule for its third continuous year of racing. The ARA will visit more locations than ever before with a seven-event National Championship Series featuring many of the greatest stage rallies in the country in 2019.

Under the ownership of PRI exhibitor United States Auto Club (USAC) and its vast resources, ARA is operated by rally competitors and promoters with a common goal of building the sport of stage rally in the USA.

Among an exciting lineup of both national and regional events, ARA welcomes the 100 Acre Wood Rally to be the opening round of the 2019 ARA National Championship Series. Known for fast roads and the famous cattle guard jump, the 100AW is a favorite event for both competitors and fans alike. Based in Potosi, Steelville, and Salem, MO, the rally is a staple of the region and will start on March 15, 2019.

“ARA is excited to open the 2019 championship with the 100 Acre Wood Rally,” said ARA President Doug Shepherd. “ARA has also focused on adding one-day events to its schedule so that the Regional competitors will have more choices and opportunities to participate. We feel our organization, being staffed with experienced competitors and officials, can assist event organizers in providing a superior event. We intend to grow the sport’s participation from the base while still enhancing the premier US National Rally Championship.”

In addition to the national championship, the ARA East and West division championships return with even more events on their calendars. Each national championship event will have two to three associated regional events, just as they were this year. In addition, five stand-alone regional events will be run throughout the year.
