Snow flies. Mud splatters. Brakes glow. Stopwatches record fractions of a second as America’s top rally teams compete in thrilling events from Maine to Mexico.

Motorsport photographer Ronnie Arnold captures the essence of this high-impact first season of the newly organized Rally America Championship and U.S. Rally Championship series during events around the United States from Oregon to Pennsylvania and California to Tennessee.

His shutter clicked as top international teams of drivers and co-drivers took on the tough stages, racing against the clock to win the event and score towards the championship.

Arnold’s book, American Rally Action, is the story of the 2005 season told through hundreds of action photographs from the stages, candid photographs of the competitors, reports, and event statistics.  With one chapter for each national championship event, it is keepsake for those who compete and those who support.  Every person who enjoys this exciting and intense form of motorsport will find this book to be an indispensable addition to their library.

The book includes forewords by J. B. Niday, and Wilson von Kessler.

“Arnold’s book offers a look at America’s unique take on this wildly popular global motorsport, documenting what I hope is the pivotal season when American rally took its first cautious steps from an unknown amateur sport toward nationwide popularity.”          J. B. Niday  Managing Director, Rally America Inc

“Ronnie Arnold needs to be thanked for the time and effort that he has expended in the compilation of American Rally Action, hopefully the first of many.”          Wilson von Kessler, General Counsel, U.S. Rally Championship

This is the story of the drivers and co-drivers who competed for American rally championships told mainly in photographs.
