Herndon, VA — Volkswagen Andretti #rallycross was in strong form again at the second race of the 2017 Red Bull Global #rallycross championship in Louisville, racking up multiple Heat and Semifinal race victories before taking home a third-place finish in Sunday’s final, courtesy of reigning series champion, #scottspeed. Tanner Foust finished directly behind his teammate in fourth, earning good points that set the two Volkswagen Andretti #rallycross drivers further ahead of the rest of the field in the championship battle.
Speed began the weekend in Louisville quickly, setting fast times in practice on Saturday morning. His early advantage would not last, however as Foust claimed pole position in Qualifying at the last moment, in the team’s second 1-2 Qualifying result of the season.
Speed won his first two Heat races, while Foust got his first win in Heat 2A and continued the trend in 3B. The Volkswagen Andretti #rallycross drivers started at the front of the grid in each Semifinal, and earned a pair of victories, setting up front-row starting positions for Sunday afternoon’s Final.
