The Oregon Trail Rally (OTR) is happy to announce that MTN DEW KICKSTART will return as a presenting sponsor for 2018. The energy drink company will continue their support of Stage Rally in Oregon after first presenting the event last year.

Introduced in 2013, MTN DEW KICKSTART brings innovation and a wide range of flavors to the energy drink market.

“We’re really pleased to have MTN DEW KICKSTART return for a second year as a presenting sponsor,” said Doug Heredos, Chairman of the Oregon Trail Rally.” The high energy, high excitement, extreme sport of Stage Rally fits well with the energy drink brand. And having not one, but two, presenting sponsors this year really shows how much our sport is growing.”

MTN DEW KICKSTART joins Wilsonville Subaru as presenting sponsor for the 2018 Oregon Trail Rally. Both sponsors will appear on all event branding, including the rally's logo and any works affiliated with OTR. Effectively immediately, OTR 2018 will be known as the Oregon Tail Rally presented by Wilsonville Subaru and MTN DEW KICKSTART.
