The 2011 Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally (STPR) came to a nail-biting finish. After 120 stage miles Subaru Rally Team USA’s David Higgins beat the 2010 Rally America Champion Antoine L’Estage by a mere 1.3 seconds. The grand finale took place at the Tioga County Fairgrounds Super Special near Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.
