Travis Pastrana has ditched the Dodge Dart and will be rejoining the Subaru Rally Team for the 2014 Rally America Championship.

Pastrana will be teammates with five-time defending Rally America Champion David Higgins and both will compete in 2014 WRX STI rally cars featuring Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Vermont SportsCar, which prepares and manages the team’s race vehicles, is currently developing new 2015 WRX STI race cars that will debut later this year.

“I’m so happy to be back with the team I’ve been most successful with in the past,” said Pastrana. “Rally racing is where my heart is and it’s a privilege to do it in a Subaru,” Pastrana said.

While drivers David Higgins and Craig Drew will make their debut at Sno*Drift Rally, the first round of the Rally America Championship, Pastrana will make his season debut at the second round of the series. Pastrana will also be competing in this year’s Global RallyCross at X Games on June 6 and 7.

From 2006 to 2010, Pastrana won four straight Rally America titles with Subaru and looks forward to climbing back to the top.
