I'm sure it was Nagle's mom.
Couple of darn lucky guys to hold onto that win.
Meanwhile down in Argentina:Looks like Meeke is on a roll....and Hayden too!
On a roll...like this?
The surprise today was Elfyn Evans winning 6 out of 8 stages.
Standings at the end of the day:

Evans nearly did it. Look at that 0.7sec final margin.

There must have been some mixed reactions in the teams. CitroÃ«n had 2 "jesus Christ Kris" moments. Craig's gearbox issues, M-Sport OMG we're winning until the bridge and Hyundai "ooops we did it again" Looking at the stages I'm glad we did not venture down there in the Mini.
Next stop: Portugal!
Mikkelsen is now driving for Citroen.
Italy this weekend.
Rally Italia Sardegna
Rally Italia Sardegna
Start Date: 08.06.2017
End Date: 11.06.2017
Timezone: UTC 2
Stages: 19 (312,66 km)
Distance: 1.495,36 km
Rugged and sun-baked gravel tracks offer gruelling conditions amid stunning scenery on the Mediterranean holiday island.
Rally base and service park are in the west coast town of Alghero with special stages in the north of the island.
After a super special near Alghero on Thursday evening, crews overnight in Olbia on the opposite coast.
Friday features four stages run twice for a total of 125.46km, bringing the return of two classic rough and rocky tests - Terranova and Monte Olia.
Saturday is the longest and toughest leg with 143.16km divided over six stages in the Monte Acuto region.
Sundayâ€™s finale is identical to 2016, featuring two repeated stages covering 42.04km on the coast north of the host town.
Fast but narrow roads lined with bushes, trees or rocks right on the edge leave no room for error.
Hard base roads covered by a sandy surface, which is swept away during the first pass to leave rougher and rutted conditions for the second run.
Thin layer of slippery gravel on the surface disadvantages early starters in the opening leg.
Temperatures approach 30Â°C so it will be uncomfortable in the cars with higher than normal stress on engines and transmissions.
Tickets - Gold Pass
Drivers raise the ride height for rutted roads during the second pass of stages.
Hard and soft compound tyres available.
Italyâ€™s WRC counter was formerly a mixed surface event based in Sanremo, and known as the Rally of the Flowers when it was first held in 1928.
It formed part of the WRC from the championshipâ€™s beginning in 1973.
MichÃ¨le Mouton became the first and only woman to win a WRC round when she triumphed in 1981.
The rally moved to the Mediterranean island of Sardinia in 2004.
Whatâ€™s new for 2017?
That overnight stay in Olbia on Thursday night. Organisers added it to allow the return of the tough Terranova and Monte Olia stages nearby.
Fancy an ice cream? As well as hosting one of the championshipâ€™s most picturesque service parks, Algheroâ€™s historic harbourside is rammed with a mouth-watering selection of Italian gelateria.
Mickyâ€™s Jump. This extremely steep jump about two-thirds of the way through the Monte Lerno stage attracts huge crowds. The steepness of the take-off, combined with the proximity of a sharp left-hander shortly after, make it a Sardinia must-see. See what we mean here:

We have our 5th different winner in only 7 rounds. (final (power) stage left, overall results right)
Not sure but I think 5th position is as high as Ogier got all rally. He lost 2min on one stage and the rest is due to finishing no stage higher than 3rd.
Not sure if anyone knows this, ESPN2 showed rally Mexico followed by rally Corsica yesterday morning. I turned the tube on & was searching for something & stumbled on them. I couldn't find them listed anywhere. I hope they continue to show the WRC rallies & I hope I find them when they're on.
Good to know.
