Tanner Foust made it two-out-of-two when he took victory in the second outing of the U.S. Rallycross Championship at New Jersey Motorsports Park this weekend,
Foust won a restarted the ‘A Main’ ahead of Dave Mirra and Liam Doran.
The ‘A Main’ was restarted after Doran had crashed early on, after he suffered a puncture. The young Briton was able to line-up for the restart, but was forced to begin from the back of the grid.
Foust got the perfect start in the final, and drove well throughout. He absorbed the pressure from the chasing pack to secure his second win in as many Rallycross events in the U.S.A.
“It was chaos, but that's what this sport's about. It's even more rewarding to come out on top when there's so much going on. It was good fun, though!”, aid Foust after the win.
Doran moved through the field well to secure a solid third place, ahead of fellow European entrant Jussi Pinomaki, who enjoyed an on-track battle with Foust, Mirra and Doran during the final.
Travis Pastrana failed to make the restart of the ‘A Main’ after a blown engine during the initial running.
The two-wheel drive class was Matthew Johnson.
Despite normally driving four-wheel drive Subarus in competition, Johnson elected to field his Ford Fairmont in the event.
Speaking after the victory, Johnson said “This was the first time I piloted a two-wheel-drive car in competition”.
Dillon Van Way finished second in the 2WD class, with Josh Wimpey third.
The next round of the U.S. Rallycross Championship runs again at the New Jersey Motorsports Park, during the weekend of the 6th and 7th of November.
