The third round of the Rally America 2014 National Championship is the Oregon Trail Rally, which took place last weekend, May 2 through May 4, and was another fantastic production. Rally fans were blessed with good weather up until mid-day Sunday, causing the stages to be slightly more trying. The first day went down at Portland International Raceway (PIR) where spectators were offered views of each stage. With the combination of tarmac and dirt, the event at PIR turned out to be a lot of fun for all the drivers as well as the spectators. Most of the teams participating finished with little to no problems and the opportunity to show off their driving skills, which is rare due to the limited amount of spectating locations on normal rally stages. In the end, it was a day for the fans. There was plenty of spectating, up close views of the service areas, and autograph opportunities with all the drivers including David Higgins, Travis Pastrana, Dillon Van Way, Adam Yeoman and David Sterckx.
