Red Bull GRC Closes Season In Las Vegas Purpose-Built Course on Strip Generates Sold Out 2015 Finale
Red Bull Global Rallycross 2015 season ended in Las Vegas with a spectacular finale in the middle of the Strip on November 4. With motorsports’ biggest names—Formula 1 champion Jenson Button, NASCAR star Kyle Larson, and top IndyCar drivers James Hinchcliffe and Josef Newgarden among them—joining a sold-out crowd, Joni Wiman and Alex Keyes braved a wet race track to take thrilling victories in the Supercar and GRC Lites classes, while new champions were crowned in a pair of battles that went down to the wire.
Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross earned its first Supercar title with Scott Speed, while Olsbergs MSE’s Oliver Eriksson bested teammate Austin Cindric despite running his first full season of motorsport at any level. Meanwhile, Ford took home its fifth consecutive Supercar Manufacturer’s championship on the strength of seven wins.
Red Bull GRC Las Vegas will be rebroadcast on Thursday, November 12 at 11:30PM ET/8:30PM PT on the NBC Sports Network.
