Talk in the Rally world regarding Ken Block is often harsh, mostly because he was able to come out of nowhere and immediately become one of the most talked about rally driver in America. But all that aside he won the 2010 Rally America 100 Acre Wood Rally for the fifth time in a row this weekend according to a post on RallyBuzz.

“I can’t tell you how difficult and challenging this weekend has been,” said Block. “This is the location of my first national rally win, so I have now won this rally five years in a row and it is a pretty good feeling to get the Fiesta home in first. The Fiesta is a big change from the car I was racing before, but I am finally starting to come to grips with how to drive it and how to go as fast as I can. It is very fun to drive and I am really enjoying the Fiesta.”

Travis Patrana was leading by over a minute when rear suspension damage put him out of the race. In an odd twist BMXer Dave Mirra finished fourth.
