Rally America (Fiesta)
- Ken Block and the Monster World Rally Team had a promising weekend at The Oregon Trail Rally end abruptly when Bock’s Fiesta slid off course and rolled down an embankment while running the Fir Mountain Long II (Stage 8). Block and his co-driver Alex Gelsomino were uninjured, but their MWRT Fiesta sustained significant damage and was unable to continue.
- The setback came after Block had recovered from a rocky start of a flat tire during Friday’s Northwest Passage (Stage 1) to take the overall rally lead early Saturday on the Fir Mountain Long stage (Stage 6). Block started the day 23 seconds behind the leader, but in two stages Saturday morning he had rebounded to take a nine second advantage. Block’s Monster World Rally Team Fiesta appeared headed for a podium result, if not victory.
