Grade, blade, rake, pack, roll, RALLY, repeat. We care for our dirt like a farmer, because like a farmer, our dirt is our livelihood. In order for you to have the perfect rally school, we must have the perfect dirt. Unlike a paved racetrack, which requires maintenance every few thousand laps or so, a rally track requires constant upkeep. The dirt, gravel, sand and mud ends up sprayed 50 feet from the track or often stuck to the bottom of the car. And to keep your lungs working, we run our water truck constantly for dust mitigation to make sure you go home with ample breath to tell everyone how much fun you had.
Meet the Team
Everything’s bigger in Texas, except the egos. While we take our work exceptionally seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. The team at RR is here to make sure that whether you’re here for serious, professional training, or a weekend corporate event, you don’t forget to take a deep breath and remember to smile, because it’s a pretty dang good chance that you’re having one of the best days ever when you’re at the Rally Ranch.
Most commonly known as Texas Dave (for some reason even in the state of Texas), Dave has been rallying and racing since 2004. His third race ever was the 2005 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb where he competed for 11 straight years stacking 3 consecutive class wins. Dave has raced in New Zealand, won the Baja 500, and driven more WRC stages in rental cars than any other Texan in history.. probably. He's known more, however, for his out of the car antics, often found imitating the voices of the stars of the WRC and narrating life in a movie trailer guy voice.

In driver training, your vehicles are like your tool box. A whole toolbox of the same vehicles is great for getting people through the program, but we believe that real driver training comes from creating adaptable drivers with a wide range of aptitude in a variety of different vehicles. Not just one or two different cars. So whether you're coming for a 1-day, 2-day, 2-day Advanced Rally School, or one-on-one private coaching, we've got the variety of vehicles to ensure you're not just a one-trick pony!
