Portland Oregon (March 29, 2018)
Oregon Trail Rally is bringing Wilsonville Subaru on board as a presenting sponsor for this year's event. The dealership plans to showcase their love for the community, Subaru vehicles, and motorsports at each of the unique venues visited by the Oregon Trail Rally.
“Wilsonville Subaru is excited to be a partner in presenting the 2018 Oregon Trail Rally. This best-in-class event deserves a great sponsor and we hope to fill that need in many positive ways,” said Wilsonville Subaru Marketing Director Paul Schnell. “And, of course, we look forward to sharing our love and support with the spectators, volunteers, race teams, and everyone else at this year’s edition of the Oregon Trail Rally.”
To showcase their support of the community, Wilsonville Subaru will debut their new Foundations Series lineup of vehicles at the 2018 Oregon Trail Rally. A series of special edition options, the Foundations Series of accessory packages may be added to any Forester, Outback, or Crosstrek model. These vehicles are modified and personalized to fit a variety of activities that Subaru owners love to enjoy.
The Surf & Sand Foundation, the Trail Foundation, and the Cascades Foundation editions each cater to a specific type of off-road enthusiast. As an additional incentive, Wilsonville Subaru will donate $250 for every Foundations Series vehicle sold to a designated charity tied to each edition: Surfrider Foundation – Portland Chapter, Mountain Wave Communications, and Oregon Wildlife Foundation.
“The Oregon Trail Rally is very proud to partner with Wilsonville Subaru,” said Oregon Trail Rally Chairman Doug Heredos. “Wilsonville Subaru is very innovative in their approach to selling and servicing cars, and they seek out opportunities to better our community. In addition, they just treat people right, which is something I really appreciate and respect."
The Oregon Trail Rally tests drivers and machines to the limit over 3 days of competition from April 20 - 22nd and is Round 1 of the American Rally Association National Championship Series. The rally action starts on multi-surface spectator friendly stages at Portland International Raceway and continues to the fast flowing technical roads of Goldendale Washington and Dufur, Oregon in majestic Columbia Gorge.
