Scott Speed Wins Sunday Big Rig Brewery Pole Award at Red Bull GRC Ottawa
Scott Speed snapped Tanner Foust’s four-race pole position streak by posting the fastest qualifying time for Sunday’s Red Bull Global Rallycross Ottawa, the sixth round of the series’ 2017 season. The Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross driver earned $2,000 from Big Rig Brewery, this weekend’s official Pole Award sponsor, with a top time of 38.642 seconds.
“Big Rig Brewery is excited to sponsor not one, but both Pole Awards for this weekend’s Red Bull GRC Ottawa,” said Lon Ladell of Big Rig Brewery. “Congratulations to Tanner Foust and Scott Speed on taking this weekend’s poles, and we look forward to another exciting day of racing!
The Canada Aviation and Space Museum course changed for Sunday’s Round 6, with the Joker Lap and main lap swapping for today’s action. This means that drivers will take the faster lap for a majority of the race, and need to carefully strategize when to take the longer alternate route so as not to give up too many positions.
