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.



The rally begins tomorrow and the first challenge involves making a journey to the top of Pikes Peak.
