No Alibi Rally 2016

The 2016 No Alibi TSD Rally is a two-day rally that will explore Central and Eastern Washington & Northeast Oregon. This is the 17th annual running of this event, and it will feature some favorite sections from past years as well as some new finds. The event will start Saturday morning in Kennewick, return to the same for Saturday evening, and end in Prosser. You'll see some of the area's best gravel back byways and some quiet paved ones. No Alibi's scored sections are primarily smooth gravel roads and are suitable for any vehicle.
