Subaru has once again shown it is the king of rally driving. At the Oregon Trail Rally, Subaru drivers David Higgins and Travis Pastrana took home a 1-2 victory. Higgins won the rally just a few seconds ahead of Pastrana. This was his sixth consecutive win at the Oregon Trail.
Both Higgins and Pastrana each won eight stages of the race, meaning the winner of the final stage would take home the prize.
“This is what sport should be, big battles, very close,” stated Higgins, in a statement. “This was a very spectacular rally with three very different days. It shows what a good car we have with our Subaru WRX STI being able to adapt to three different rallies in one event and we didn’t have to change anything; so I’m very, very happy with the team and the car.”
Higgins is the defending 2015 Rally America Champion. He and his co-driver Craig Drew will compete in round four for the 2016 Rally America Championship May 14-15 near Shelton, Washington at Olympus Rally. Then, he and Pastrana will compete again at STPR rally June 4-6 in Westboro, Pennsylvania.
