Tanner Foust’s 2015 season can’t be described as anything short of a return to form for the two-time Red Bull Global Rallycross champion.
No, he didn’t add another championship to his mantle, or even equal his runner-up finish from three years ago. But after a dismal 2014 that saw him fall to ninth in the standings, Foust rebounded with a vengeance, giving the Volkswagen Beetle its first points-paying main event win, sweeping the doubleheader in Barbados, and climbing back to third in points at the year’s end.
It was a big year for the three-time Supercar Fan Favorite Driver, who was only in his second season with Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross. Not only did Foust tie for the most main event wins with three, he also added two more podiums in Los Angeles and helped Volkswagen come within three points of its first Manufacturer’s championship.
The results were living proof that VARX’s hard work on developing the Beetle had paid off. Foust stepped into the car halfway through the 2014 season, using the final four races as a test session to aim for a championship last year. Even in its earliest form, Foust found ways to squeeze every ounce of speed out of the car, winning its first heat race in Los Angeles and qualifying up front in the season finale.
Still, Foust won’t be satisfied with anything short of a championship, and last year’s title went to teammate Scott Speed. Knowing that the title is within his own team’s camp, you can bet that there’s nobody more motivated in the series than Foust to grab this year’s crown.
