LOS ANGELES — Red Bull Global Rallycross has confirmed that Volkswagen Rallycross NY, the fourth event of the 2014 Red Bull Global Rallycross season, will take place on July 19-20.

The event will be held at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., the current home of the New York Islanders.

Two-time Red Bull GRC champion Tanner Foust, former Formula One and NASCAR stars Scott Speed and Nelson Piquet Jr., 2013 GRC Vegas winner Ken Block, and GRC Lites graduates and Supercars rookies Austin Dyne and Joni Wiman headline the entry list for the two-day event.

Nearly two dozen cars will compete across the series’ Supercars and Lites classes, with factory-backed entries from Ford, Subaru, Hyundai, and title sponsor Volkswagen all taking part in the event.

Volkswagen Rallycross NY follows June’s Volkswagen Rallycross DC, the third event of the 2014 Red Bull GRC season and the first of eight standalone events this year. The New York event also kicks off a three-week stretch of constant Red Bull GRC action that will also include stops in Charlotte and Detroit.

Tickets for Red Bull Global Rallycross Volkswagen Rallycross NY start at $20 for a single-day ticket, with two-day and VIP ticketing options available
