The stakes at this year’s Red Bull Global Rallycross event at Daytona International Speedway on June 19-21 just got higher. Red Bull Global Rallycross and Daytona International Speedway officials have adjusted the race schedule on Father’s Day Weekend to include a second championship round.
Practice and qualifying will take place on Friday, June 19, followed by championship rounds on both Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21. Each round will pay out points to the driver for the season-long championship.
“We’re excited to be able to add another championship round to the weekend schedule and grow this event,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “The inaugural Red Bull Global Rallycross in 2014 produced non-stop action on the course. To be able to add a second championship round for the 2015 event gives race fans another opportunity to see how exciting this form of racing can be.”
Red Bull Global Rallycross is returning to Daytona International Speedway for the second straight year. On Father’s Day Weekend, the stars of Red Global Rallycross will slide, bang and fly in manufacturer-backed entries such as Ford, Subaru and Volkswagen on portions of Daytona’s famed road course asphalt and a challenging dirt section. Red Bull Global Rallycross Supercars produce 600 horsepower and accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than two seconds.
