Too far away. On top of that, we already are pretty good for rallies in Alberta... we have 3 (including one in Invermere). Not that I'd ever try to stop someone from organizing a rally and would actively encourage it, but most teams are based south of Red Deer, so the distance for a regional event would be significant.

I think the Leduc 1000 seems to be getting a bit of general press, if there is one thing Mike is good at doing, it's press related stuff. If everyone took a bit of their racing dedicated time and focused it on solely promoting the sport, that would add a lot of free exposure that would go a long way IMO.
