Last Week: Phoenix

Five wins in five broadcasts have contributed in a big way to Mitchell deJong’s points lead in the Red Bull Global Rallycross iRacing season. Facing off against the top drivers in the series as always, he managed to hold off Coanda Simsport teammate Rens Broekman to take the victory in last weekend’s debut round at ISM Raceway in Phoenix. Click here for the full recap!

Driver Profile: Rens Broekman

After missing a couple of weeks’ worth of races, Broekman returned to the front of the pack last weekend in Phoenix, where he placed second to Mitchell deJong. He was also the runner-up in the first broadcast of the season in Daytona, running the longer layout that will host tonight’s action.
