The Northeast Rally Club was formed in January, 2001, however we have been holding time speed road rallies since the early 1990’s. In 2003 we decided to use our events to raise money for local charities. The annual PUMPKIN RUN (every October) is held in Millsboro, DE and has raised well over $70,000 for the Millsboro Volunteer Fire Company’s Building Fund. The Thunderbolt Rally in Millville, NJ supports The Millville Thunderbolt Club. The PENN-YORK ROAD RALLY supports the Beach Lake Fire Company in Beach Lake, PA.
We had a ‘rough’ beginning. As a regional event for the Great Race we were an active group. But times changed, and the North East Rally Club was formed to forge an independent and charitable organization that currently boasts over 100 members. We hold rallies all over the north east wherever we can find a good place to go. Currently the club is experiencing renewed growth and vigor as we are again connected with the Great Race, feeding about 10 percent of the total participation in their event every year.
