HAMPTON, Ga. – The Global Rallycross Championship will invade Atlanta Motor Speedway and compete on a custom-designed track in the Global Rallycross Atlanta event on Aug. 10.

A new era of racing, the Global Rallycross Championship combines the thrill of four-wheel racing with unique course designs featuring dirt and asphalt surfaces, drift turns, airborne jumps and water elements. The event features a series of elimination heat races, which will produce 10 drivers to compete in a winner-take-all final to determine the Atlanta Global Rallycross Champion.

Competitors in the Global Rallycross Championship event at Atlanta Motor Speedway will be coming directly from the Global X Games in Los Angeles, where they will compete in the Global Rallycross Championship the prior weekend. Top GRC drivers like Ken Block, Brian Deegan, Tanner Foust, Bucky Lasek and Dave Mirra will descend on Atlanta from across the globe to compete at the historic facility.
