WEDDERBURN driver Brendan Reeves is within striking distance of winning the 2WD Rally America title.
The 25-year-old heads to the US next week to prepare for the final round - the Lake Superior Performance Rally on October 18-19.
If the race results fall his way, he could take out the championship.
Reeves and his co-driving sister Rhianon Gelsomino are sitting second, three points behind leader Andrew Comrie-Pickard, despite missing the first two events in the seven-round series.
If the Australians can secure victory in the last round and their main rival finishes second, they will claim the title by two points.
If they come second and Comrie-Pickard is third, the teams will be tied on points but Reeves will be awarded the crown on a countback because he has won more events.
Racing in their Team O'Neil Ford Fiesta, the central Victorian motorsport duo have taken out each of the four Rally America rounds they have contested since their late entrance.
Reeves said he was confident of turning in a good performance on the roads in and around the towns of Houghton, Covington and L’Anse in Michigan.
"Our whole season has been incredible so far and for it to come down to this at the last round is amazing," he said. "I can't wait for the battle to begin and take on the challenge flat out."
A series win would also cap off a special few weeks for Gelsomino.
Formerly Rhianon Smyth, she married fellow co-driver Alex Gelsomino last month. The Italian lives in the US and navigates for Ken Block.
