Speed Sweeps Los Angeles Double Header with Two First Place Wins

Speed sealed the deal in Los Angeles, stealing his second first-place finish of the Global
Rallycross doubleheader weekend.

The California-native now sits in the second position in the championship point standings
after his podium sweep in Los Angeles.

“It’s been a great weekend, obviously at the beginning of the season we struggled a bit, but with a new program like this you’re bound to have problems and we have had them. I think our
Beetles are dialed in, they are fast and durable, so I see us as a major threat for the championship. I couldn’t be happier, I feel so lucky to be able to drive this Merchant First Beetle and I have a great teammate, a great team and I cannot say enough good things about Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross.” – Speed

Scott Speed Takes First Place at Port of Los Angeles

The All-American racer finished race one in Los Angeles in the first position, ultimately bumping him into the third spot in the championship points hunt.

The former Formula 1 driver set the fastest lap in the No. 41 Merchant First Beetle during this weekend’s doubleheader event at the Port of Los Angeles.

“It’s a tough track, it’s super technical honestly, but it’s definitely my favorite so far this season. The crossover jump is a huge addition to Global Rallycross that we all love; so I’m happy to see it make a comeback. There was a lot of strategy that played out in today’s race, obviously that final turned out exactly how we wanted. It feels incredible to walk away with a win and more importantly some solid championship points. Fingers crossed that we can end tomorrow’s race the same way.” – Speed
