Rally Tennessee Returns! Watch our new Rally Tennessee promo!
Celebrating it's 5th year, the acclaimed Rally Tennessee expands to a two-day event May 23 - 24, 2009 showcasing more rally cars and motorcycles than ever before. Early entries are being accepted and the regular deadline is May 15.
NASA Rally Sport's annual Rally Tennessee will kick off summer during Memorial Day weekend just an hour west of Nashville. This Linden, Tennessee based event will have cars and motorcycles racing over a closed course of super twisty roads on Saturday and Sunday.
The rally is unique in its terrain which takes advantage of the winding along Tennessee's mountain ridges. Although rally racing roads come in many flavors, the predominant format in North America is gravel roads. Rally Tennessee is a ”tarmac“ rally and provides a special challenge to the racers. Competitors must use specialized tires and re-tune their suspension dramatically to hold the course. Even their driving styles must change completely to accommodate the very different grip condition of Perry County's roads.
This year's expanded format include a new Shakedown Stage and an additional Parc Expose offering ample opportunities to meet the competitors and sponsors. Many competitors from as far away as Canada, Poland, Ireland, England, or as close as New York, Florida, and North Carolina, will return to Perry County for this spectacular event. Rally Tennessee attracts novice and veteran competitors alike while spectators enjoy the variety of viewing locations throughout Perry County.
Rally Tennessee offers opportunities to those interested in motorsports and racing. Volunteers can get involved at the starts and finishes of the racing stages, assisting in the pit/service areas, facilitate communications, and help with registration. Get involved! Sign up here.
