FloSports and American Rally Association Announce Coverage for 2019 National Rally Championship
Speedway, Indiana (April 5, 2019)
Today, the American Rally Association (ARA) and FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content, are pleased to announce a partnership to provide exclusive live and on-demand coverage for the remaining 7 events of the 2019 ARA National Rally Championship Presented by AMSOIL on FloRacing.com.
The live and on-demand coverage will begin on April 27-28 at the DirtFish Olympus Rally in Shelton, Washington. Broadcasts will include live interviews, on-stage coverage, results, and more throughout each day of competition. Fans will get to watch and hear from North America’s top rallyists, including Subaru Motorsports USA stars Oliver Solberg and 9-time US champion David Higgins, as well as top drivers like current points leader Piotr Fetela, 100 Acre Wood Rally winner Barry McKenna, and defending Limited 4WD class champion Jeff Seehorn.
“Stage rally in the United States speaks directly to the core of today’s car enthusiast, and ARA’s partnership with FloSports is an excellent opportunity to showcase the sport and its stars on FloRacing,” said United States Auto Club (USAC) President and CEO Kevin Miller. “Rally racing happens in some of the most remote parts of the country on back-roads that are, many times, inaccessible to race fans. Partnering with FloSports allows those fans to watch how the stories of the weekend unfold for some of the most talented drivers in the world.”
“FloSports is proud to bring the 2019 ARA national championship and rally competitions to FloRacing,” said FloSports Vice President of Global Rights Acquisition Mike Levy. “We are looking forward to offering rally fans and our subscribers unprecedented content and coverage from these events, as well as providing a platform for these drivers to share their stories.”
The agreement is part of a larger partnership between FloSports and USAC, the parent company of ARA. Streaming more than 10,000 live sporting competitions per year, FloSports continues to emerge as the global leader in live, in-depth, and on-demand digital coverage for passionate sports fans. Along with stage rally, the newly announced relationship with USAC will bring fans more than 130 live racing events in 2019.
In addition to Olympus, subscribers will have access to the ARA National Rally Championship as it crisscrosses the country from Portland, Oregon to Bethel, Maine. The popular Oregon Trail Rally starts in Portland, Oregon and runs from May 31-June 2. It will also be the season debut of five-time national champion Travis Pastrana and co-driver Robbie Durant. A few weeks later, on June 22-23 Idaho Rally International will send drivers into the dusty mountains north of Boise. Then a trip east to the marquee New England Forest Rally in Bethel, Maine on July 19-20 will celebrate the height of summer.
Pastrana and Durant will jump back behind the wheel of their Subaru on August 23-24 for the Muscatell Ojibwe Forests Rally in the tourist haven of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. The start of the fall season will set a perfect backdrop for racers and fans as ARA heads to Pennsylvania for the Waste Management Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania on September 13-14. The season will then wrap up in the college town of Houghton, Michigan with the Lake Superior Performance Rally, the ARA season finale, on October 18-19.
