Los Angeles, CA (February 15, 2018) — The Red Bull Global Rallycross Buffalo double-header event will take place Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10, as Lancaster National Speedway holds the season opener of the 2018 Red Bull GRC season. The series will add its own flavor to nearly six decades of motorsports history at the speedway, bringing rally style racing to the venue for the first time.
“Lancaster National Speedway will be an exciting addition to this year’s schedule as we kick off our first event of the season with both a doubleheader, and a new venue,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne. “The location is perfectly suited for all our rallycross fans in the northeast.”
The series will assemble a purpose-built course featuring multiple racing surfaces and a 70-foot dirt jump, utilizing segments of the two-existing oval tracks. Additionally, the Polaris GRC class will stage its debut event at Lancaster, as the new Polaris RZR® RS1 takes on the challenges of a rallycross course for the first time.
“Lancaster National Speedway & Dragway is very pleased to welcome Red Bull Global Rallycross to our award-winning motorsports facility,” said Tim Packman, Track President. “This will be the first event of its kind for us and we look forward to welcoming all the teams and fans to this great event.
