ARX

The Americas Rallycross run ended Oct. 6 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

With a two-sentence statement posted to its website, the Americas Rallycross Championship and its IMG stakeholder called it quits on Nov. 15.
After consultation with a wide group of stakeholders and interested parties, IMG has taken the difficult decision to not extend the Americas Rallycross Championship beyond the 2019 season. We would like to thank our passionate fans, teams, drivers, partners and event hosts for their support and participation in Americas Rallycross.
The ARX replaced the Red Bull-sponsored Global Rallycross series that operated from 2011 through 2017. Scott Speed will go down as the short-lived series’ greatest champion, winning the Global Rallycross championship in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Speed also won the ARX championship in 2018. Tanner Foust won the 2019 title after Speed missed the final two race weekends due to a broken back suffered in a crash at a Nitro Circus Rallycross event.
The final season included six events, including two at Mid-Ohio along with stops at World Wide Technology Raceway at Madison, Illinois; Montreal, and Circuit of The Americas at Austin, Texas.
