Susquehannok Trail Performance Rally

Running for the past 42-years, the Waste Management Susquehannok Trail Performance Rally (STPR) has seen stage rally teams compete on some of the most challenging stage roads in North America. Known for its tight, technical, and narrow stage roads, STPR allows for no margin of error. Trees push up against the twisting roads, creating tunnels through the Pennsylvania Forests where even a small drift wide can lead to disaster. The dense canopy creates sunbeams and flickering sun to a speeding car, a source of distraction that drives must overcome. STPR truly is a driver's challenge. 

The rally starts with the spectator friendly Waste Management stage. This stage road is purpose-built for rally on Waste Management facility grounds just outside the rally's base in Wellsboro. The stage features one of the biggest jumps on the ARA calendar, where cars fly over 125ft in front of the crowd. From there, STPR heads into the deep woods, where competitors face the environment in addition to each other. Day two features one of the longest stage roads in the US, the 24 mile Mine Hole Stage.

Both days of the event feature Super Special Stages at the Waste Management Complex. These stages put the rally action in front of the crowd and have two competitors run a stage side-by-side in a race to cross the finish line first.
