Marie]]> 2014-12-16T11:22:28-08:00 Team Rockstar Energy Polaris Racing enjoyed a successful weekend of snowcross racing as the 2014/2015 Rockstar Energy Drink CSRA season kicked off at Searchmont Ski Resort in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. All three of the team’s drivers stayed consistent over the two days of handlebar banging action, ensuring a bounty of championship points were chalked up on the scoreboard.

 

On Saturday, Hayden, who is gunning for his eighth Pro Open National title this season, grabbed second place at the checkered flag in his first heat. He came out swinging in the second heat to take the win. A mediocre start in the final saw Hayden pour on the gas to manoeuvre his Polaris IQ 600 into a second place finish by the end of the race, just ahead of his teammate Dylan Hall, who finished third.

The three-time U.S. rallycross champion will race for Volkswagen in 2014, one of two drivers on the just-announced Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross (VARX) team.

"The level of preparation that Volkswagen Motorsport and Andretti Autosport bring to rallycross can't be overstated. Volkswagen conquered the World Rally Championship on their first attempt and joining them for rallycross is an amazing opportunity," said Foust.

Volkswagen of America, Inc., announced details this week at the Chicago Auto Show, where the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Beetle is on display.

"Volkswagen is delighted to have Tanner Foust as the driver of the Rockstar Energy Drink Beetle," said Vinay Shahani, Vice President, Marketing, Volkswagen of America. "We feel that the combination of Volkwagen, Andretti Autosport, and Tanner's proven track record in the Global Rallycross Series should be highly competitive during the 2014 season." 

Foust and VARX will open the season in May with a rallycross-built Volkswagen Polo developed from the chassis that won the 2013 World Rally Championship.

"It's incredibly rare to have the chance to work with a brand new factory backed motorsport effort from the very beginning," said Foust. "I'm excited to have the chance to play a critical role in building the VARX team from scratch."

After starting the 2014 season behind the wheel of a Polo, Foust will make the switch to the Rockstar Energy Drink Beetle. This all-wheel-drive rallycross car is the ultimate expression of the third-generation Beetle. It will feature more than 560 horsepower from its turbocharged and direct-injection EA888 TSI® engine.

"I know what the Polo has to offer because I've been door-to-door with it for two years. It's a great car," said Foust. "The Beetle is going to be hard to beat. The drive and passion that the Volkswagen and VARX engineers have shown in the development of this car is just awesome and I can't wait to drive the most ferocious Beetle ever!"

Driver Scott Speed will compete alongside Foust on the VARX team. Michael Andretti, CEO of Andretti Autosport, said: "I'm thrilled to be entering the series, and especially happy about teaming with Volkswagen to form VARX. We are excited about our driver lineup of Tanner [Foust] and Scott [Speed]; I believe we have the best drivers in the series and will be a top contender."

Foust is committed to a full 2014 Global Rallycross championship campaign with Volkswagen and Andretti Autosport, including X Games in June in Austin, Tex. He will also drive a Volkswagen in select events in the new FIA World Rallycross Championship with Marklund Motorsport. The Rockstar Energy Drink driver will make his first appearance behind the wheel of a Volkswagen at the GRC season opener in May.

"For the past five years, Ford and the Olsbergs MSE team have been better partners than I could have imagined. The cars are great, the company is great and the racing team is absolutely the team to beat," said Foust. "It's never easy to say goodbye, but I'm looking forward to the season ahead."

I am happy with the team and the bike and confident on it always. I made some training this week in Thailand and I thought I was ready for the heat but I still got hammered!

http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/deegan-takes-the-2013-loorrs-pro-lite-championship <![CDATA[DEEGAN WINS 2013 LOORRS PRO LITE CHAMPIONSHIP]]> 2014-12-10T14:57:57-08:00 With the championship all but wrapped up coming into the weekend, Brian Deegan took a 51-point lead into the final race of the 2013 championship over Sheldon Creed. After Creed rolled in qualifying, forcing him to start back on the sixth row, things were looking even better for Deegan, who would only need to take the start and not get disqualified in order to lock out his third championship in the category. Deegan got the early lead, and his ultra clean #38 Rockstar/Makita Ford was quickly opening up a lead over the rest of the field. Noah Fouch ran second in the #52 GoPro/BFGoodrich Tires Ford, with RJ Anderson third in the #1 LoanMart/Maxxis Dodge, Kyle Hart fourth in the #41 ReadyLift Off Road Suspension/Southwest Ground Control Dodge, and Bradley Morris fifth in the #24 K&N/Kicker Ford. Over the opening three laps, the top five held their positions, but on lap four, Morris came to a stop just out of turn three, which forced a full course yellow. Racing resumed on lap seven, but a rollover in turn two by Trenton Briley brought that yellow right back out. Briley was able to re-fire and continue, despite heavy damage to his front suspension, but as for the leader, things were suddenly a bit different. As the field slowed to bunch back up behind the pace truck, smoke became evident from the back of Deegan's truck, and with nothing more to gain, Deegan elected to pull into the hot pits and save any further damage to his truck. On the return to green flag racing, it would now be Fouch, Anderson, Hart, Jerett Brooks in the #77 Synergy Electric Racing/Radar Tires Nissan, and Creed in the #74 Traxxas/Method Race Wheels Dodge running in the top five.

Hart got by Anderson for second early on the restart lap, but Anderson came right back to strongly challenge Hart over the next two laps. These two, along with the leader Fouch, then ran three-wide over the biggest jump on the track (out of turn two and down into turn three), with Anderson coming out in the lead after the next corner. Brooks managed to pass Hart there, as did Creed, and it was now Anderson, Fouch, Brooks, Creed, and Hart in positions one through five. On the next lap, another trio of drivers went three-wide over the same jump, but this time, things didn't end so smoothly. Creed, Hart, and Fouch were the drivers involved, and Hart got the worst of it. Hart started into a twisting barrel roll in mid-air, and landed nearly on his roof, which sent him sideways and into a violent, fast set of snap rolls. With nothing to slow him, Hart did at least eight full rolls down the slope into turn three, before finally coming to a stop off to the left of the entrance to turn three. Hart was ok, but was nonetheless transported off-site for further evaluations. Our thoughts are with Hart and his family, and we wish him a speedy recovery.

After a long red flag/yellow flag period, racing finally resumed, with Anderson, Brooks, Jimmy Fishback, Jacob Person, and Justin Smith running in the top five. Fouch had suffered broken front suspension, and for some reason, Creed was now at the back of the pack. Smith got by Person at turn one on the restart lap to take over fourth, and Casey Currie then got around both Smith and Person on the inside at turn three to move into fourth. Smith picked off Currie for fourth on the next lap, and got Fishback coming out of turn three on lap 17 to move up to a provisional podium finish. On the final lap, Brooks suffered a heartbreaking end to a terrific run, as mechanical issues sent him to the side of the track in turn one. Up front, this left Anderson well clear, and he brought home his sixth win of the season, a nice consolation prize after he missed out on defending his 2012 championship. Smith finished a season-best second in the #19 Competitive Metals/Metal Mulisha Ford, and Fishback equaled his stunning result from back in Round 5, right here at Lake Elsinore, as he rounded out the podium in third in his #48 General Tire/Maximum Turbine Support Nissan. Currie picked up fourth in the #2 General Tire Jeep, and fifth went to Chris Brandt in the #82 BFGoodrich Tires/Simpson Toyota. Despite his DNF this afternoon, Deegan still garnered his third title in five years in the class. Congratulations to Brian Deegan, the 2013 Lucas Oil Off Road Pro Lite Unlimited champion!

Bristol, Tenn.  (March 16, 2014) - The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) made its first stop of the 2014 season this weekend at the famed 0.533-mile Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS) for the Drive To Stop Diabetes 300. Dylan Kwasniewski and his Rockstar Energy team looked to familiarize themselves with the "World's Fastest Half Mile" and continue to gain experience with one another.Kwasniewski and his Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team started the weekend by qualifying 11th, but had to drop to the back of the field at the start of the race due to damage suffered during the "knock out" qualifying session. After fighting his way through traffic and running top-10 lap times during the middle portion of the race, Kwasniewski crossed the finish line in 15th position.

Once the green flag dropped, Kwasniewski and the rest of the field quickly jockeyed for position going into the tight Turn 1 at BMS. Kwasniewski picked up six spots by the second lap and was scored in the 33rd position when the first caution of the day came out on lap five. After the restart on lap nine, Kwasniewski and the rest of the field settled into a long green-flag run. The Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender found himself in the 25th position and two laps down when the second caution of the day came out on lap 96 for debris. During the caution, Tryson called Kwasniewski down pit road to change four tires, add fuel and make a track-bar adjustment to help loosen up the No. 31 Rockstar Energy Camaro. After a quick pit stop by his TSM team, Kwasniewski maintained his position and restarted the race from the 25th spot, still two laps down.

The Las Vegas, Nevada native quickly radioed to his crew that the latest set of changes helped tremendously and that his car felt much better. Kwasniewski worked his way through traffic and found himself in the 20th position, three laps down, when the third caution of the day came out on lap 136. During the caution, Tryson decided to stay out, take the wave around and gain a lap back. With teams on different pit strategies, Kwasniewski restarted in the 19th position, two laps down. Battling four other cars on his lap and running top-10 lap times for the remaining portion of the race, Kwasniewski was able to bring the Rockstar Energy Chevy home with a solid top-15 finish.

"My Turner Scott Motorsports prepared me with another great Rockstar Energy Chevy this weekend," Kwasniewski said. "It's a shame that these guys have had to work so hard these past few weekend's to get our car back in race condition, but they rallied back and gave me a great car. I'm glad we were able to come home with a top-15 finish." .

The NNS next heads to Auto Club Speedway for the California 300 on Saturday, March 22 at 2:00 p.m. EDT on ESPN.

With clean sweeps of the qualifiers and finals, the defending Open Champion ruled supreme at Georgian Downs and further strengthened his grip on both the national and provincial points chase.   

 

In Saturday’s races, a confident and extremely motivated Hayden put his Polaris IQ 600 ahead of the competition in a superlative way by pegging the holeshots in both qualifiers as well as the final. He stayed on the gas and never looked back, leading all three races wire-to-wire.

It was a big day for Rockstar Energy and the U.S. Snowboarding Team. Chas Guldemond took 3rd place in the first Olympic qualifying final at Mammoth, and Kyle Mack followed his lead with another 3rd place in the second final. 

Mammoth Mountain is the third resort to host the U.S. Grand Prix this season. Facing an unseasonably warm winter in California, the Grand Prix was forced to move the Northstar stop back to Breckenridge, CO. However, the Grand Prix was faced with another challenge when a tough weather font hammered Breckenridge. Ultimately the decision was made to cancel the finals at Breckenridge and run three events during the Mammoth Grand Prix instead of the two that were originally planned. 

Within four days the USSA will host six Olympic qualifying events across two disciplines, pushing many athletes to the edge of their snowboard competition careers. Today was possibly the most trying day of the year for many riders looking for spots on the first-ever U.S. Snowboard Slopestyle Team. Chas Guldemond has unofficially secured his spot on the Olympic team with this second podium finish after four events, and will look to be named to the team on Saturday following the last final of the U.S. Grand Prix. Today's podium marks Kyle Mack's first of the season.]]>
http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/clement-desalle-wins-german-mxgp <![CDATA[Clement Desalle Wins German MXGP]]> 2014-12-10T14:57:56-08:00
Rockstar Energy Suzuki Factory Racing’s Clement Desalle mastered the many ripples and ruts of a demanding Talkessel circuit in Teutschenthal, close to the city of Halle in Germany to bring the potent RM-Z450 its fourth overall win of the season.

Talkessel was the scene of round 11 of 17 in MXGP and the second FIM GP in the space of a week. Some 31,000 fans rolled into the sunken venue under bright skies and a stiff breeze to see Desalle and team-mate Kevin Strijbos do battle once more and fulfil the role of protagonists in the premier category of this gripping, brutal and entertaining sport.

Teutschenthal assumed its standard position as the home for the German Grand Prix after undergoing some big and important renovations and modifications for the 67th Motocross of Nations last September. The shortened and dark soil surface constituted the usual small climbs and drops and many off-cambered turns.

It was a stage that Strijbos owned completely on Saturday when he raced to his third pole position of the season. It was ‘2013 ‘Nations winner Desalle who was the more effective away from the line in both 30 minute and two-lap motos on Sunday, however: Desalle was nursing a stiff left wrist after his hefty prang in Italy last week, but the side-effects were hard to notice as he closed down a five-second gap to leader Max Nagl and hassled the German all the way to the finish line; setting the fastest lap in the process. It was a close and exciting duel but Desalle could not force through to first place. In the second moto he took matters into his own hands from the third corner and once ahead did not look back. The ‘#25’ motored to his seventh race-win of the year and his sixth from the last five Grands Prix.

Strijbos was not far behind. He struggled to replicate his bright getaway from Saturday and in the first moto was especially frustrated trying to overtake Valentin Teillet and eventually finished seventh. He was more concise in the second sprint as two measured overtaking moves pushed the Belgian up to second place for a Rockstar Energy Suzuki 1-2. Strijbos was fourth overall and just missed the rostrum by two points.

The repercussions of proceedings in Germany are visible in the MXGP standings where Desalle has totalled 452 points so far; only 25 behind Cairoli. Strijbos, meanwhile, continues to consolidate a comfortable position in fourth place, some 108 points in front of Shaun Simpson in fifth.

Grands Prix in Sweden and Finland represent rounds 12 and 13 of the championship and will take place across the first two weekends of July. After intense competition in Italy and Germany, Rockstar Energy Suzuki WMXGP can taste some respite and prepare for the three fixtures in July that will carry the 2014 campaign onto the home straight.

Clement Desalle:

“I didn't have a good weekend in Italy and hurt myself a little bit but this was much better! I didn't ride this week and my wrist was painful up until Wednesday but it started to warm-up after the first sessions. My starts were good and this was really important. Max was really strong in the first moto and made a small gap. I closed it, but could not find any places to pass. Anyway, second was a good result and I knew I had to be totally-focused on the start for the second one to try and win the GP. To be first from the beginning meant I could concentrate on my riding and didn't have a look around until the last 10-minutes when I could relax a little bit. It is cool to win in Germany; especially after such a good race. The ground is really special here, sometimes there is grip and sometimes not. You have to be consistent every weekend and now the gap in the championship is 25 points – just one moto – and we have plenty of motos left.”

Kevin Strijbos:

“Not bad but I’m a bit disappointed not to make the podium. I actually had a good start in the first moto but someone hit me in the first corner and then Jake [Nicholls] crashed and I hit him. I lost three places and although my riding was good for a while, the arm-pump came back and the race was over. I tried to catch Simpson but I could not hold-on any more and I’m still not sure what to do. My start was better in the second and so was my riding with some good lines and overtaking. The speed was there for the podium and maybe even the win. We just need to find a solution for my arms because it is bothering me at the moment. But at least we can leave here with a positive feeling from that second moto.”

Race Recap - In his track debut at Auto Club Speedway, Dylan Kwasniewski drove the No. 31 Rockstar Energy Chevrolet to an 11th place finish in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday afternoon. With speed on their side during the weekend's two practice sessions, the Rookie of the Year contender was able to qualify in 7th position for the start of the TreatMyClot.com 300. After the green flag dropped, Kwasniewski battled a tight race car and found himself in the 15thposition when the first round of green flag pit stops took place. During the stop, crew chief Pat Tryson called Kwasniewski down pit road for four tires, fuel and an air pressure adjustment. Shortly after, Kwasniewski reported that his No. 31 car felt much better and his lap times were a direct reflection of this, as he was running top-5 lap times. Kwasniewski had worked his way up to the 12th position just before the second caution came out in which he came down pit road for a round of adjustments to help free up the Rockstar Energy Chevy. The Las Vegas, Nev. native would restart in the 12thposition and continue to run within the top-15 for the remaining portion of the race, bringing the Rockstar Energy Chevrolet home in the 11th position.

Dylan Kwasniewski on Racing at Auto Club Speedway

"My Turner Scott Motorsports prepared me with another great Rockstar Energy Chevy this weekend. It was fun to get out there and learn my way around Auto Club Speedway. The car had great speed this weekend, we just battled a tight race car at the beginning of the race and that hurt us a little bit. We will take the off weekend coming up to work on a few things and get prepared for Texas in a couple of weeks."
