Global Rallycross Returning To DirtFish Venue
LOS ANGELES – Red Bull Global Rallycross will return to DirtFish in Snoqualmie, near Seattle, Wash., for the penultimate round of the 2014 Red Bull GRC season.
The two-day event will take place on Sept. 26-27, and will be broadcast on Sept. 28 at 1 p.m. ET on NBC.
“We’re very excited to bring Red Bull Global Rallycross back to the Seattle market this September,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne. “Returning to Seattle has been a priority for us, and we’re pleased to partner with DirtFish to bring world-class racing to their grounds once again.”
“Returning to the site of the second-ever GRC event, and one of our all time favorite tracks, is something we’re really excited about,” continued Chip Pankow, COO. “We can’t wait to welcome back the fans from season one and see many new ones—they’ll be able to witness the progress the series has made since those early days first hand.”
The event will mark the second time that Red Bull Global Rallycross has visited DirtFish grounds, hosting a two-day show at the location back in April 2011. The event was a fan favorite, providing incredible race action through the dirt and an abandoned warehouse. Olsbergs MSE principal Andreas Eriksson won the first day’s event, while two-time Red Bull GRC champion Tanner Foust won the second day’s finale.
In 2014, the series will return to DirtFish with a completely reconfigured track and many fresh faces. Foust and Rhys Millen will headline the Red Bull GRC drivers making their return to the venue, while Olsbergs MSE, Subaru Rally Team USA, and Hyundai/Rhys Millen Racing will also visit DirtFish as part of the series for the second time.
“People are still talking about the event we had in 2011 and we are often asked when we are going to have another one,” said DirtFish’s Marketing Director Troy Jorgensen. “We are very excited to have Red Bull GRC return to DirtFish and expect this event to be a favorite for both the fans and the drivers this season.”
