Tanner Foust and Brian Deegan share semi final wins in Daytona


Tanner Foust and Brian Deegan go into the second Red Bull Global Rallycross final at Daytona in the best possible position after taking the semi final wins.

Foust claimed the first semi victory, ahead of Joni Wiman with Daytona I winner Steve Aprin claiming the last automatic final spot. Scott Speed, driving a spare car after two fires in the first two days of the event finished fourth with Austin Dyne coming home last after contact with a tyre wall sent him into a spin.

Deegan won the second semi final, timing his joker lap to perfection to get by Sebastian Eriksson.

Eriksson led from the start, with Deegan and Jeff Ward applying the pressure. Patrik Sandell made an aggressive start from the second row, forcing Ward wide to lake third on the exit of the first turn.

Sandell would later serve a penalty for the incident, although he was able to fight back to take the third and final automatic transfer spot ahead of Ward and Rhys Millen.

Speed made up for missing out on a win in semi final A by triumphing in the last chance qualifier ahead of Ward, Dyne, and Millen.
