WELLSBORO, PA ­ Rally driver Andrew “ACP” Comrie-Picard overcame a series of

big challenges at the Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally last weekend to

move into second place in the Rally America points race.

“It was  a tough weekend for us,” said Comrie-Picard. “But every point

counts in this championship and we’re in it for the season.”

Comrie-Picard and Irish co-driver Marshall Clarke fought back from 31st

after a rollover crash to finish the race in 13th overall. The result gave

them the handful of points they needed to climb up one rung in the tight

championship race.

“Marshall and I were actually able to roll the car back onto its wheels and

keep going,”said Comrie-Picard. “It was a soft rollover and with a new

windshield, the car was back to 100 per cent ­ but we lost a lot of time.”

Comrie-Picard is in second-place overall after five rounds in the Rally

America championship, behind Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana

and ahead of Rockstar Energy¹s Tanner Foust.

The Susquehannock Trail event has long been known as one of the most

demanding events on the U.S. calendar. The 2009 running of the contest

featured a return to the popular two-day format, with a spectator-friendly

daylight schedule and super special stages on each day.

³The spectator stages at the fairgrounds in Wellsboro were huge this year,²

said Comrie-Picard. ³It was great for us to see so many fans out there.²

The contest is renowned as one of the toughest on the Rally America calendar

and the team was not alone in having problems. Factory-backed Travis

Pastrana lost a minute on the first day to a suspension failure, Polish ace

Andi Mancin battled braking issues and the Swedish World Rally team of

Patrik Sandell and Emil Axelsson were out with a blown engine on the first

day.

The Rally America national championship includes nine events in a

cross-continent season that extends from January to late October. The

Canadian Rally Championship has six events from coast to coast. ACP Rally

will contest a busy season, with rally events on both sides of the

Canada-U.S. border, select drift events — and the X Games.

The next U.S. event for the team will be the X Games in Los Angeles.
