LONG ISLAND, NY (July 20, 2014) -- Rockstar Energy Drink driver Tanner Foust scored his first Global Rallycross win of the season on Sunday at Volkswagen Rallycross New York.

It was all about the starts for the two-time champion, who blazed off the line to use the sub- two-second 0-60 launches of the Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen Polo to maximum effect.

"The starts were the critical factor for me here," said Foust. "It can be very difficult to make a pass on a tight rallycross course and getting out front early and staying out of trouble is key to winning."

Foust also credits the...

JOLIET, Ill (July 20, 2014) - Making his first-career NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday night, Dylan Kwasniewski and his No. 31 Rockstar Energy team looked to put down laps and get familiar with the 1.5-mile oval in the 200-lap race. During the two-day show, the NNS had two practice sessions on Friday afternoon, where Kwasniewski and his new crew chief Shannon Rursch looked to fine tune the car while laying down the 19th and 22nd fastest lap times, respectively.

The mild weather of the 2014 season continued for Rockstar Energy Racing as the series traveled to Minnesota and the Spring Creek Motocross National. However; although the temperatures were lower than normal, the humidity was still sneaky as several riders were forced to bow out due to exhaustion. They were also effected by the rough track, many uphills and downhills and more than anything, the two long whoop sections. The team was able to put together a pretty successful day despite those challenges.

Jason Anderson has clearly found his groove and can win a moto at any time. The fire that...

Kevin Strijbos:

“It was very hard work out there. I didn't feel good all weekend. I lacked power and strength. After the first race I was completely dead; I felt like I had raced three motos. I missed the gate-drop and was totally last. I knew I needed to play it safe at the beginning and try to save some energy for the end. That’s what I did and by pushing hard in the last few laps I was still able to take a podium and I’m happy for that. The team told me going into the final lap that I had to pass Ferris for the podium so that's what I did.”

Rockstar Energy Racing experienced continued success at Budds Creek in Maryland. Jason Anderson carried his momentum from Redbud with his 2nd consecutive podium on a very rough track. In fact all of the tracks from the past few weeks have been much tougher than years past and Anderson is handling the terrain very well.

Jason Anderson clearly found his speed in the 2nd moto at Redbud. It was obvious in the way he was riding and attacking the track. That high carried into Budds Creek as he was on top of the leader board in both qualifying practices. He was just knocked down to second place on...
