Pastrana/Edstrom are 2006 Rally America National Champions

Houghton, MI - Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana has secured the Overall Driver's title of 2006 Rally America National Championship by finishing third at the Lake Superior Performance Rally. Pastrana held a strong lead in the championship coming into the event this weekend and needed only a 6th place or better to mathematically secure the title. However, Pastrana's chief rival Matt Iorio crashed out of the rally early on Friday thus handing Pastrana the title with day two of the rally, as well as the final round of the season still to come. The event was won by Subaru Rally Team USA driver Ken Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino.The team's final event of the season is the Wild West Rally on December 1-3, 2006 in Olympia, WA.
