The rally seems to be shaping up as quite a wild affair. It seems you have to place bets as to how well you'll do. In addition, there will apparently be casino gambling in DC or at least "up the road".
Glorioski! Flyers will be out soon but this doesn't seem like an event for the graybeards (including me). Seems like ya need some rally knowledge, a fast car and the ability to drive it, a willing navigator (hang on), and the desire to win a cash prize.
I guess you could pay for some autocross tires this way.
