Muscatell Ojibwe Forests Rally

At over 150 miles, 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.
