Racing driver Ken Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino have won the 100 Acre Wood Rally in Salem, Missouri. The event was the second round of the 2014 Rally America National Championship and represented Block’s seventh 100 Acre Wood victory out of eight attempts.
The Hoonigan Racing team led the rally from the very first stage, with Subaru’s David Higgins and Craig Drew remaining close behind until the second day, when they were forced to retire with an engine failure.
"I felt as if I had very few mistakes this weekend. Unfortunately, my top competition fell out on day two and I was able to extend my lead. It took some pressure off, which I don't like, because I like to push hard. Instead, I was able to just enjoy these roads and put on a good show for the fans,” Block said.
The 2014 Rally America National Championship will resume on May 2, when the Oregon Trail Rally is scheduled to kick off.
