Well, the long off-season is coming to a close as we kick of the 2017 rally season with the April Friday Nighter. As you all know, the weather has been extremely wet, and it has wreaked havoc on some of our favorite rally roads. John Humphrey is the rallymaster this month, and he selected are really cool course, only to have some of the roads close. So he altered the course, only to have some more roads close. He altered it once again, and we checked the rally out Friday night. The course is really fun and has a couple of easy traps just to make things interesting. The rally is about two hours long and finishes at Ferrelli’s Pizza in Maple Valley. Http://farrellispizza.com/locations/farrellis-maple-valley-wa/. It will be a fun run!
