After the success of the CJ Pony Parts Route 66 Rally, we here at CJ Pony Parts have decided to head sponsor Rally North America’s next big east coast event, Rally Appalachia 2011! Mark your calendars and prep your ride, because come July 2011, RNA will be hosting an event that you won’t want to miss. Great sights, great fun, great people and, as always, for a GREAT CAUSE!
Starting July 18th, 2011 and running through July 21st, Rally Appalachia 2011 takes its participants on a scenic and fun ride through the wonderful Appalachian Mountains, starting in Winchester, Virginia. From there, the rally is underway through the famous Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, ending at the Marriott in Charleston, South Carolina on the 21st. Planned highlights during the rally include a trip to Darlington Raceway for a few laps on the track, “Too Tough to Tame”, laps at Shenandoah Speedway “Where the Mountain ROARS”, police escorted parades through the cities of Lexington, VA and Spartanburg, SC, and a meet and greet with NASCAR Legend David Pearson. Many more surprises and great times will be had during Rally Appalachia 2011, but you will have to be there to check it all out!
UPDATE: Our two winners have been chosen! Congratulations to Shane M. from Texas and Ryan W. from Maryland! Shane will be driving his 2010 Mustang GT and Ryan will be driving a 1991 5.0 Fox Body. Have fun, guys!
Update: All standard registration spots have been filled for Rally Appalachia 2011. We are still taking entries for our giveaway, so make sure to leave a comment to enter! RNA is taking registration for 20 “stand-by” spots, in the event that a team has to drop out before the Rally begins in July, 2011. If you want to register for one of the “stand-by” spots, you can register here. These spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Rally North American defines themselves as, “a group of automotive enthusiasts that enjoy attending and discussing TSD (time, speed & distance) Rallies that are NON-profit and Charity based and just about anything automotive related.” With this mindset, RNA has put together a great event for next July that promises to be a great time for everyone involved while raising money for a great cause, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund was established officially as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003. Through 2005, the Fund provided close to $20 million to families of United States military personnel lost in performance of their duty, mostly in service in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2005 federal legislation substantially increased the benefits granted to these families. With the needs of these families now being supported much more substantially, the Fund turned to the next area of the military community needing help: our wounded warriors.
In January 2007 the Fund completed construction of the Center for the Intrepid, a $55 million world-class state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation center at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. This Center serves military personnel who have been catastrophically disabled in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and veterans severely injured in other operations and in the normal performance of their duty. The 60,000 square foot Center provides ample space and facilities for the rehabilitation needs of the patients and their caregivers.
