Red Bull GRC Atlantic City Doubleheader Returns on August 25-26 

Bader Field to convert into rallycross course for third straight year

Los Angeles, CA (March 15, 2018) – Atlantic City returns to the 2018 Red Bull Global Rallycross schedule Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26 with a stop at historic Bader Field for the third consecutive year. The Red Bull GRC Atlantic City doubleheader will play host to Rounds 8 and 9 of the championship schedule.

“After successfully expanding the Atlantic City event into a doubleheader last season, we made sure a return to Atlantic City was a priority for this year’s schedule,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne. “Bader Field has become such an important home for our series in the northeast, and we look forward to being back in New Jersey while in the thick of our 2018 championship chase.”

Fans can expect even more adrenaline pumping race action as both the Red Bull GRC Gold and Polaris classes take to the Bader Field track for the first time in series history. Also expected to return for 2018 is the series’ annual Boardwalk Parade, as the world’s premier rallycross cars drive down the iconic Atlantic City Boardwalk for a fan festival the night before taking to the track.

Scott Speed Wins Red Bull GRC Atlantic City

Despite getting shuffled into the middle of the pack at the start of the final, Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross driver Scott Speed simply would not be denied in the Round 8 Red Bull Global Rallycross Atlantic City Supercar final. The two-time defending Supercar champion, and last year’s Atlantic City winner, caught Subaru Rally Team USA’s Patrik Sandell by mid-race, got around him coming to the white flag, and held on for his third straight victory to unofficially reclaim the championship lead.

“The start went really well—I went into Turn 1 all by myself, but then the chaos ensued and we came out in like sixth!” Speed explained. “We had to put the gloves on and fight, and we ended shuffling up to third by the end of the first lap. Not to take the Joker was a bit of a gamble, because if someone behind us had taken it and held us up it wouldn’t have worked out, but fortunately no one did. I was able to use the Joker on (Sebastian Eriksson) and then track (Sandell) down. It all came down to the past two laps and making no mistakes, and it was a really hard-fought battle.”

Speed, incoming championship leader Tanner Foust, and Chris Atkinson started on the front row of the final, but only Speed would survive the first lap intact; an early spin for Foust would force him out of contention and lead to a last-place finish, while Atkinson’s left rear suspension was damaged heavily to force him off track early. Sandell, starting from the inside of the second row, seized the opportunity to stretch out what looked like an insurmountable lead over Sebastian Eriksson, with Speed lurking in third.
