Scott Speed, Volkswagen Andretti take 3rd straight Global Rallycross titles in Los Angeles
Both Volkswagen Andretti Global Rallycross drivers found success this weekend at the season finale in Los Angeles, securing wins in the race and the overall Driver’s Championship.
Scott Speed, driver of the No. 41 Oberto Circle K Beetle GRC, focused on protecting the championship title all weekend. To do this, he needed to be fast, but limit the risks he took on the track. After qualifying second on Friday, Speed battled second and third-place finishes in early Heat races on Saturday, but won his Semifinal putting him back into a good starting position for the Final.
Speed was shuffled to fourth in early laps of the Final, but fought his way back to a second-place finish with a smart execution of the joker lap, safely clinching the Driver’s Championship.
