Bill Bacon and Peter Watt are sitting in 4th place on the road after the Friday evening stages at the Rally America 100 Acre Wood event. As the teams are about to line up for the start at the Missouri event this morning, Bacon is 1:46 behind leader Travis Pastrana. Not that far considering that a single flat tire could eat that up very quickly. Between Bacon & Pastrana are Canadian Antoine L’Estage in 2nd and 4 time event winner Ken Block in 3rd.
L’Estage is 22 seconds behind Pastrana thanks to a flat on stage. As Block is still feeling out the new Fiesta, he should get faster as the day goes on. Remember that Block is looking for a 5peat at this rally. If this keeps up, today will be a serious battle.
We’ve got a gallery of images from the Bacon Motorsport pit last night after the break. Watch for the Autoblog stickers above the headlights! I really should get some stickers made up!
