If anyone plans on beating Mitchell deJong on #DIRTNight, their time is running out. The 2014 GRC Lites champion is now a perfect 10 for 10 on the Friday night shows, having beaten Adam Elby and Fabian Menetrey to the checkered flag last weekend in a chaotic Phoenix final that saw multiple rollovers and incidents that claimed more than one front-runner. Click here for the full recap!

Driver Profile: Fabian Menétrey

Competing for VEC-Simracing, the Swiss-born Menétrey finally scored his first #DIRTNight podium last week in Phoenix. He’s been a part of every Friday night feature since the new year, scoring a fourth place finish the last time the series ran the longer Daytona layout—so don’t be surprised to see him go for back-to-back podiums later tonight!
