STPR has become a very popular family event, especially with the Fairground stages, where kids can get up close to the rally cars, meet the drivers, enjoy some refreshments, and then watch the cars battle on a closed course for competitive times and a chance to win the event. STPR organizers weave the spectators and the cars closer by re-instituting a Parc Expose – an open exhibition of the cars – at this time spectators can meet the drivers, get signatures and buy merchandise and view the ceremonial send-that begines the timed racing stages. At the Fairgrounds stages, spectators pay five dollars for admission each day, and get a stadium view of a SUPER SPECIAL spectator spectacular.
The Waste Management Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally®, presented by Citizens & Northern Bank, is a National Rally, approximately 300 miles long with approximately 128 miles of competitive stages.

The Finger Lakes Rally is a Regional Rally, coefficient 3 that includes Stages Seven through Ten and is approximately 80 miles – both Regional rallies are run in conjunction with the full national event.
