Subaru Driver David Higgins Wins the Oregon Trail Rally for the Third Straight Year
Cherry Hill, N.J., May 6, 2013 - Subaru Rally Team USA driver David Higgins took a big step toward achieving a third straight Rally America Championship by winning the Oregon Trail Rally this weekend. With the win, Higgins can likely now claim the Oregon Trail Rally as his event, having won the event all five times he has entered; including wins the past three years in a row. As his two key rivals faltered this year in Oregon, Higgins and his BFGoodrich Tires-shod 2013 Subaru WRX STI built an insurmountable lead on the opening stages and was able to drive conservatively for the majority of the competition stages.
The Oregon Trail Rally is a three-day event that kicked off May 3rd with mixed gravel and tarmac stages at Portland International Raceway. The rally then moved to the scenic yet challenging gravel roads around the Hood River and Dufur regions east of Portland on Saturday and Sunday.
