Hey there, Kinjasphere! We’re a week away from heading down to beautiful Barbados for the penultimate round of the 2015 Red Bull GRC season, but while you (and we) wait for that, let’s catch you up with some highlights from our most recent race in Los Angeles: »
Here’s Scott Speed in a purple sparkly unitard anyway. Speed apparently lost a bet to fellow Global Rallycross competitor Tanner Foust, who then requested the he dress up like a character from figure skating farce Blades of Glory.
Yesterday, I went out to the Marine Corps Air Station New River, where the most recent Red Bull Global Rallycross race was held. Aside from there being a lot more helicopters and tilt-rotor aircraft around, it was set up like most rallycross races, which is to say, not great for spectators. Luckily for Red Bull, I… »
When we last saw Scott Speed’s Red Bull Global Rallycross Volkswagen Beetle, it looked a bit off. Too clean. Too polished. Too together. Now that it made it through the X Games’ Rally Car feature race to win the event, however, it looks much more like a real, honest-to-goodness off-road Volkswagen.
The only way I can think of to cram more X Games into this picture is to redecorate Nelson Piquet Jr.’s car in neon, have someone jump it on a bike, and add a few more GoPros for good measure. Prepare your face for all things extreme!!!—the X Games are coming this weekend. »
This year, the X Games entered the wonderful world of Austin, Texas to highlight a wide range of sports. We were in attendance to capture both the Global Rallycross and the Super Stadium Trucks.

Global Rallycross (GRC) goes into a new season this upcoming weekend, and that means it's time to take a look at what we could expect. While rallycross has been popular in Europe for decades, it's a new sport in the US and this season of GRC will be the fourth season. It is the highest level of rallycross in the US… »
2012 was a challenging year for the Subaru Puma Rallycross Team. Against factory teams with significantly more experience, podium finishes proved to be rare. Meanwhile, David Higgins continued his winning streak in the Rally America Championship. »
Global Rally Cross Ends In SEMA With A Slidey, Smokey Finish Tanner Foust sealed up the Global Rallycross Championship at the season finale at SEMA. He may have won, but the star of the show was Brian Deegan, who dove into second place and drove the rest of the race completely sideways. It was fantastically hoony. »
This week's best rumor: Tanner Foust was given the $500,000 Global RallyCross Ford sponsorship after Ken Block was fired for showing up in shorts 90 minutes late to a meeting with Bill Ford Jr. That's half true.
