Rocky Start to Olympus for Higgins

Two-time defending American rally champion David Higgins and his co-driver Craig Drew are in for a fight this weekend at the Olympus Rally in Washington. It's the last event on the American rally championship calendar.

Higgins and Drew are in second after the first four stages of the event trailing rally leaders Ken Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino by 2 minutes and 12.6 seconds as the rally enters a lengthy break on Saturday afternoon because of dry, forest fire conditions south of the Olympic Peninsula outside Olympia, Washington's capitol.

Higgins said much of his problem came on the fourth stage, a fast, 20 mile test, that found him slamming into a rock just past the halfway point in the stage.
