Newry ME, Errol NH, Sunday River Resort

Since 1994 the forest roads of Maine and New Hampshire have come alive with rally cars in the summer. The New England Forest Rally and it's predecessor, the Maine Forest Rally, see competitors weave through forests and around secluded lakes along the border of Maine and New Hampshire. The stages at NEFR vary in character, some are straight and fast, while others are tight and twisting. Though one thing is constant to all of them, hills and jumps. NEFR has cars see more total airtime than anywhere else on the calendar. Jumps over crests, jumps under braking, jumps leading directly into sharp corners. NEFR challenges teams to controlled flight. 

The competition starts in Maine with the picturesque Concord Pond stage, the most famous stage road of the rally. This fast, twisting, road features several jumps over crests, sending teams sideways in the air while challenging them navigate corners. The stage also features the fan favorite Concorde Pond Jump, a high speed left-hand curve that sends cars flying past excited spectators.

Detroit Lakes, Itasca, and Park Rapids, MN

Muscatell Ojibwe Forests Rally is one of the longest stage rally events in the US. The rally, situated in the 10,000 Lakes region of Minnesota, is a competitor favorite for its smooth, quick, and free flowing stage roads. Ojibwe is a fast rally, with competitors spending much of their time in fifth or sixth gear. When the high speeds break the rally route gets complicated. Several times during the event, the racing surface transitions onto ATV access roads barely wider than a car. These roads also feature a departure from the smooth racing surface, forcing competitors over large rocks and through deep ruts. 
 
Day 1 of the event features the Red Bull jump, one of Ojibwe's signature locations. The jump is a fan favorite, over the crossroads separating a straight section of stage road from a twisting one. Bravery and skill are needed here. Day 2 sees the rally finish in the heart of downtown Detroit Lakes on the fan-favorite street stage along the town's namesake lake.

Wellsboro PA, Germania PA, Tioga County Fairgrounds

42 years running, the Waste Management Susquehannok Trail Performance Rally has seen stage rally teams compete on some of the most challenging stage roads in North America. Known for its tight, technical, and narrow stage roads, STPR allows for no margin of error. Trees push up against the twisting roads, creating tunnels through the Pennsylvania Forests where even a small drift wide can lead to disaster. The dense canopy creates sunbeams and flickering sun to a speeding car, a source of distraction that drives must overcome. STPR truly is a driver's challenge. 

The rally starts with the spectator friendly Waste Management stage. This stage road is purpose-built for rally on Waste Management facility grounds just outside the rally's base in Wellsboro. The stage features one of the biggest jumps on the ARA calendar, where cars fly over 125ft in front of the crowd. From there, STPR heads into the deep woods, where competitors face the environment in addition to each other. Day 2 features one of the longest stage roads in the US, the 24 mile Mine Hole Stage.

Both days of the event end with head to head Super Special Stages at the Tioga County Fairgrounds. These stages put the rally action in front of the crowd and have two competitors run a stage side-by-side in a race to cross the finish line first.

Nemadji Trail Rally

The December weather can pack a nasty punch in Northern Minnesota and for much of the past 15 years participants of the Nemadji Trail Rally have embraced everything Mother Nature has thrown at them.

Born out the simple desire to build upon the rich history of stage rally in the Midwest, the Nemadji Trail Rally was formed to give regional rally teams a consistent winter event in Minnesota.

Winding through the Nemadji State Forest on frozen gravel roads that become severely affected by the unpredictable early winter weather, competitors fight everything from rain, snow and extreme cold over the 36 miles Nemadji Trail Rally has to offer this one-day event.
