Los Angeles, CA (March 2, 2017) – Building off of last year’s wildly popular debut, Evergreen Speedway will host the penultimate event of the Red Bull Global Rallycross season for the second year in a row in 2017. Red Bull Global Rallycross Seattle will be expanded to a doubleheader this year, staging Rounds 10 and 11 of the 12-round schedule on Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10.
“Red Bull GRC fans showed up in full force to support the series’ return to the Pacific Northwest in 2016, and we can think of no better way to reward their unwavering support than to bring them more action packed racing with a doubleheader event at Evergreen Speedway,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne.
Evergreen Speedway president Doug Hobbs said, “Red Bull Global Rallycross is a world class racing series that we are proud to host at our facility. Fans who missed out in 2016 have been waiting for this release for the past six months. We know this year will be even bigger and badder than last year!”
In 2016, fans packed the stands of Evergreen Speedway to see drivers jostle for championship position at Red Bull Global Rallycross Seattle. Drivers will return to action on the same course layout this year, charging down the frontstretch into the banked Turns 1 and 2 before diving into the dirt infield and conquering the dirt, Joker Lap, and signature 70-foot jump.
In last year’s Supercar final, fan favorite Tanner Foust became the first driver to win both drifting and rallycross events at the track, while also reclaiming the championship lead. In GRC Lites, Washington-based DirtFish Motorsports scored a dominant victory with Conner Martell, much to the delight of local fans. Both drivers are expected to attempt to defend their wins in 2017 against a field that includes two-time defending Supercar champion Scott Speed and a multi-car effort from fan favorites Subaru Rally Team USA.
