Subaru Team to Compete in Nitro Rallycross

Many vehicles are developed with specific purposes in mind, beyond purely being a mode of transportation. For instance, pickup trucks are designed to tow and carry a payload. One thing that Subaru vehicles, with the Subaru WRX in particular, are designed for is heading off road.

This is why Subaru Rally Team USA has developed a track record as being a top team in the rally scene. The WRX vehicles that the team drive are powerhouses, with an all-wheel-drive that makes rallycross the perfect outlet for their potential.  

Subaru Rally Team USA will field three of these outstanding vehicles, the 2018 Subaru WRX STI Rallycross supercar, in the first Nitro Rallycross this year at Nitro World Games. The event, in its third year, will take place on September 22 and 23. Piloting the team’s three vehicles are Travis Pastrana, Chris Atkinson and Patrik Sandell, all of them more than familiar behind the WRX’s wheel.

Nitro World Games is a competition that features some of the best talent in action sports. The Subaru team USA has some homefield advantage, as team member Travis Pastrana is the creator of the event. This year marks the first time that Nitro World Games will feature rallycross, and it is fitting that the creator of the games should race in the inaugural event. Tickets are available now for the games, which will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah.
