The ARC Round was won by Cody Crocker and Greg Foletta in the Subaru, with a win on Heat 1 and second on Heat 2, giving them their second consecutive national title. Chris Atkinson with Ben Atkinson was second overall, placing third on Heat 1 and winning Heat 2. This was the year before Atkinson joined the Subaru WRC team.
