An amazing weekend filled with expanding the rally vibe into the mainstream motorsports consciousness just happened in West Virginia. NASA Rally Sport held a rally sprint event, as well as a very extended public rides session, at the Summit Point Motorsports Park. The event was a part of the HyperFest weekend, an annual motorsports festival that attracts over 10,000 visitors. Located in the northern end of West Virginia, the area is conveniently located to major metropolitan areas like Washington DC and New York City.
‘It was a huge success.’ said Anders Green of NASA Rally Sport. ‘We gave over 200 rally rides, and they all got out with huge smiles on their faces. These people are the next generation of rally drivers and volunteers. As a sanctioning body, investing time developing interest in rally, and educating people about how they can get involved and get started racing is one of the most important things NASA Rally Sport does.’ Maria Orsini of Summit Point Motorsports Park added ‘We had people at the gate saying that had driven all the way here specifically for the rally rides.’
The second day of the event was all racing. Two highlights stand out. First, was Alvin Fong winning the sprint. ‘It was HyperFest last year that pushed me to actually finish my rally car and get out on the stages.’ said Fong. That Fong could go from bystander to event winner in a year really speaks to the reach that this event has. That he managed to win by pulling out an amazing final run, besting hot shoe Charles Sherrill, is even more impressive. The second highlight was the new team of Corey Kline and Ben Brown managing a class podium.
