#MorriesRoadTrip to Road America with Ben Wedge

I’m fairly certain that Morrie’s has written a few blogs about Road America and the surround area and rightfully so. Road America and the surrounding area are filled with motorsports history dating back to the first road race held on the village streets and surrounding roads in 1950. The on track action is golden; just search YouTube for “Road America Finish” and you’ll see what I mean. Recently the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar series showed up along with the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Porsche GT3 Cup series and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series. Often called “America’s National Park of Speed”, Road America provides of the most scenic views of any racetrack.

Rally America National Championship Series

February 23, 2013 saw the start to the second race of the Rally America National Championship Series in Salem, MO at 100 Acre Woods. This Rally is known to be one of the most scenic races in the series. The race got its name from the storybook home of Winnie the Pooh. The event takes place in the foothills of the Ozark Mountain range and is home to some of the tightest and fastest roads in the series. Every twist and turn puts the drivers ability to the test, including Lauchlin O’Sullivan and our own Scott Putnam from CPD racing.

They came into the event with a freshly built 2008 Subaru WRX STI backed by Lucas Oil, Wolf LED and Morrie’s Subaru. Even with the limited time in the new WRX STI rally car O’Sullivan and Putnam were able to place 1st in the Super Production class and 3rd overall.
