Mike Oberg Enters the AutoWeek
America Adventure Rally
Eagle River, WI (October 23, 2012) -
Mike Oberg and Jaime Pooch have teamed up, thanks to support
from AMSOIL, General Tire, and King Shocks, as the #80 AMSOIL
M-80 team to compete in the seven day AutoWeek America
Adventure Rally. The event will have over thirty teams compete
the rally where the winner will take home a brand new Chrysler
300 SRT, but more importantly the rally will bring awareness
and funding for the Graham Rahal Foundation. The foundation
picks up where the late Paul Newman left off - supporting
children with medical conditions. Proceeds donated to the
Graham Rahal Foundation are split equally between two
upstanding organizations: Alex's Lemonade Stand and the
Association of Hole in the Wall Camps.
On October 24,
2012, teams will begin in the beautiful mountain community of
Colorado Springs, Colorado. The next 6 days of gaming will
take teams through some of the most diverse countryside in
America with each evening ending in a new city. As part of the
game, and the fun, teams will have no idea where they'll end
up for the night and will have to "get a clue" in order to
navigate the route correctly.
On day 7, the event will come to an end in the bustling
metropolis of Las Vegas, Nevada. With a big finish, a few
teams will have the chance to test their luck one last time
and hopefully take home the grand prize: a brand new car!
Each day of
the event, teams will be competing for a key. Points are
earned by solving clues, completing missions, and correctly
navigating the route on time and at speed limit. Several point
earning Track Challenges are also incorporated into the game
plan. The team who collects the most points without breaking
the rules will win a key at the end of the day.
There will be 7 keys up for grabs. At the finish line, all key
holders will be brought up on stage and given the chance to
start the car. Whoever starts the engine, wins the car.
begins tomorrow and the first challenge involves making a
journey to the top of Pikes Peak.
