MCAS New River opened its gates to the public and received a flood of Red Bull Global Rallycross fans eager to see some racing action, and they were not disappointed.

The track was the largest in GRC history at 0.993 miles, and the event also marked the first time a racing series had ever competed on an active military base.

Both Subaru Rally Team USA’s cars made the final race of the event. The #11 and #81 charged hard off the start, with Bucky fighting his way up to third by lap two.

However, the race was not much more than half way over when a red flag came out after Brian Deegan hit a barrier hard.

Bucky and Sverre lost the ground they had gained, as GRC rules dictate that cars do not retain their position for a red flag restart, instead they default to the original starting grid.

On the first lap, Bucky was rear ended by Steve Arpin in turn four, causing a spin; which also impeded Sverres progress, dashing hopes for a strong finish.

In the end, the SRT USA was mid pack with Sverre Isachsen in sixth and Bucky Lasek in seventh.

Round five of the Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship will take place at Bell Isle in the great city of Detroit, Michigan.
