Mike Minneman (Allentown, Penn.) and co-driver Dan Fouquette (Portland, Maine) share their view of Stage 2 piloting a 1989 Honda CRX on Stage 2 of the Waste Management Winter RallySprint. The course was still slippery, but the team soon needed to use the windshield wipers as the snow and ice began to melt as the temperatures rose above freezing and the course became muddy. Even with some difficulties, the team finished fifth in the R2U class.

“It was absolutely muddy, and the mud and snow made the rocks much more dangerous,” Minneman said. “That’s why we wound up losing a tire.”
