Laughlin, NV (November 20, 2004)

Members of American Rally Sport Group of Laughlin are pleased to announce the inclusion of The Ramada Express International Rally USA as the final round of the United States Rally Championship in 2005.

All events in the series will have FIA Calendar listing through the United States Auto Club (USAC), allowing entries from international teams within North America and from around the world. The Ramada Express International Rally USA opened in 1998 as America's first FIA-listed event in more than a decade, and continues as the longest-running such rally in America today.
