MaxAttack! raised the level of two wheel drive rally racing in the United States for the past few years. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsor during those years, Danza del Sol Winery in Temecula Valley, California, the Rallysports Group of America (RSGA) paid out a cash purse of $15,000 USD per year to be divided amongst the fastest teams competing in the MaxAttack! events.

Welcome to the 2011 Lake Superior Rally in Houghton, Michigan. It is pouring rain with a brisk wind, could it really be any other way for a rally in the Upper Peninsula?
Cars are out running the first two spectator stages just outside Houghton. We have not yet had a chance to interview any drivers or see any scores, so we'll try to get some updates from the service area in Kenton later this afternoon. We may not have internet access in Kenton, so updates may be kind of sporadic.
We do know that Joseph Burke and Alex Kihurani are running without heat in his Ford Fiesta. They have a blower for air circulation, but without the heat it may be of minimal utility. When your clothes are wet and you get in a car, it fogs up in a hurry!
In any case, here are a few photos to whet your appetite:
