Higgins won the 2014 Oregon Trail Rally over his teammate Travis Pastrana after a massive comeback that came down to the last two stages of the three-day, 18 stage event.

Pastrana and Higgins each drove Vermont SportsCar-prepared 2014 Subaru WRX STI rally cars in what was a Subaru dominated event with the top five finishers at the wheel of Subaru rally cars.

Higgins' supremacy in Oregon is further solidified with this being his fourth win in a row and sixth total, having won every Oregon Trail Rally he has entered!

The Oregon Trail Rally represents round three of the 2014 Rally America National Championship. The event began with unique mixed gravel and tarmac stages at Portland International Raceway and then moved to the scenic yet challenging gravel roads around the Hood River and Dufur regions east of Portland for the bulk of the event.

The Oregon Trail Rally will air on NBC Sports Network on June 1, 2014 at 6pm EDT.

"We had nothing to lose and pushed like mad in places, it's a shame Travis (Pastrana) had his tire issue at the very end but it was a good fight," explained Higgins. "I'm so happy for the team; a Subaru 1-2 finish is great. This is now my sixth win here and we definitely worked for this one!"
