Mother/Son Team Wins Fall Foliage Rally

CUMBERLAND, MD - Eight intrepid teams braved the remnants of Hurricane Wilma and were treated to an enjoyable Fall Foliage rally through Eastern Allegany County and nearby Pennsylvania.

Designed by Doug Macy and sanctioned by the Washington DC Region SCCA, the rally covered 72 miles between the Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort and Mark’s Daily Grind Restaurant and Coffee Shop in Cumberland’s downtown art and entertainment district.

Entrants were treated to a brisk continental breakfast under a tent at the Resort and enjoyed live music at the Daily Grind as results were tabulated.

The winning team of Michael Shriver and mom Judy attributed their first-time rally success to years of precise navigation and timing on Michael’s newspaper delivery route! Local autocross regulars Patrick and Bill Geraghty were second and Team Hyundai’s Paul Przyborski and Kate Mewhiney snagged third place in their first-ever rally effort.

The next National Road Rally will be held in June, 2006 in conjunction with the fifth annual National Road Vintage Weekend.
