2020 Alaska Winter Year Ender Rally

MatSu Valley area

About this event

We're doing it again!!!! The Winter Year Ender Rally is Back for its Third Season!! The Arctic Alaska Region of the Sports Car Club of America is putting together a Poker Chip GTA Rally. This rally will test drivers, navigators and machines on some of Alaska's most epic roads. 

If Mother Nature gives us snow and ice we are in for a challenge and as such competitors are strongly urged to equip their cars with winter tires as well as traction aides. Each car should also ensure they have winter gear for survival for all occupants.

  • The Road Rally will start at 9am at the boat ramp parking lot at Reflections Lake, Reflections Lake, Palmer AK.
  • Competitors will have six hours to navigate the defined course.
  • At the Start, Check Points and Finish, The driver and navigator will blind draw two poker chips each.
  • These chips will be used to determine the overall winner. 

The route will start at the boat ramp into the Knik River at the end of the road just past Reflections Lake Parking Lot off the Glen Hwy just across the Knik river and end at Settlers Bay Lodge (5801 S Knik Goose Bay Rd, Wasilla, AK 99687) Unfortunately, we are not allowed to host a social event afterwards, we intend on tallying chips and awarding winners in the parking lot.  We will officially end the Rally at that point. This year there will be two mountain stages, and a new route with some amazing roads.
