U.S. Rallycross runs again this weekend

Some big names from within American motorsport, as well as from the European scene, take to the track at the New Jersey Motorsports Park this weekend.

The second round of the U.S. Rallycross Championship takes place in the Garden State, and welcomes back Travis Pastrana, Dave Mirra and Tanner Foust, who all took part in the first round at the end of August.

Joining them is Rhys Millen, who can combine a racing and rally background, ties together with a unique skill set due to his stunt-driver role in Hollywood.

Liam Doran has traveled to the U.S.A to compete in the event. The British driver finished third in the European Rallycross Championship this year, has transported his Citroen C4 to America for the event.

Doran’s fellow European, Jussi Pinomaki also travels to America, along with his Oslberg MSE Ford Fiesta machine.

Tanner Foust claimed victory in the inaugural U.S. Rallycross event in August, with Pastrana and Mirra second and third respectively.

Foust will be fully aware of the threat Liam Doran poses, having competed against him in a number of rounds of the 2010 European Rallycross Championship.
