DirtFish Rally School Renews Partnership with Americas Rallycross
DirtFish Rally School and Americas Rallycross (ARX) announced today a renewal in the organization’s founding partnership, building upon the foundational growth of 2018’s relationship as the Official Rally School of ARX. “We are delighted to extend our relationship with DirtFish,” said ARX Series Director, Jordan Martindale. “Their commitment to the growth of the sport is vital, and the enthusiasm and dedication from their staff and partners have been a major contributor to the healthy state of ARX. Not only will we continue our relationship, but we will explore innovative ways to promote rallycross and engage with new audiences together.”
The Snoqualmie, Washington-based outfit, who are also involved with the new ARX2 Mentorship Program, will be launching fan and industry voted awards which will be presented at the conclusion of the ARX season. These awards include; The Fan Favorite, Most Improved Driver and Best Social Media Presence in ARX and ARX2. “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Americas Rallycross through the 2019 season,” said DirtFish Owner, Steve Rimmer. “With the rebirth of rallycross as a sport in North America during 2018, ARX was able to see significant growth in their fanbase and we are pleased that DirtFish was a large part of that success. With our motorsports program being so strong in the championship last season, our current vision is to share our rallycross expertise and knowledge through the new ARX2 Mentorship Program and open new doors for young drivers who are cultivating their driving careers." In 2018, DirtFish fielded the ARX2 Champion Conner Martell, Jamaica’s Fraser McConnell and Americans James Rimmer and Scott Anderson in the ARX2 developmental category, as well as being the title sponsor of the inaugural DirtFish ARX of Circuit of The Americas event in July, the first ARX event in North America.
