JSC Speed Rally America U.S. Rallycross Series set for Round 3 on October 20th at New Jersey Motorsports Park
Ticket includes admission to 5th annual SCCA Jersey Road Racing Classic at Thunderbolt Raceway
MILLVILLE, N.J. – New Jersey Motorsports Park is preparing to host its third JSC Speed Rally America U.S. Rallycross Series of the 2012 season, with the series returning to Lightning Raceway on Saturday, October 20th.
“Rallycross is the most exciting sport I’ve ever raced. I took my Spec Miata out in 2010, now I’m in a Ford Mustang GT competing against other cars I’ve never seen before.” said Kyle Gagliardi who will be back in the action during Round 3. Featuring a five-wide, standing start, Rallycross challenges drivers to pilot their cars through a challenging short road course, made up of pavement and gravel, featuring jumps, unbanked turns, and hills. Each driver is also required to complete one “joker lap” per heat, which includes a small detour over a jump, adding a level of unpredictability to each heat.
Fans will be treated to free parade laps around the Lightning course, a pre-race fan walk with drivers, and $1 soft drinks.
Club Loose, which was on hand for July’s Rally event at NJMP, will be once again provide on-track drifting demonstrations throughout the day.
Just across the property on Thunderbolt Raceway, fans can enjoy the Jersey Road Racing Classic, the SCCA’s season-ending event featuring a unique format with class qualifying Saturday morning and racing three times over the course of Saturday afternoon and Sunday, giving drivers three chances to progress through their class’ field with the hope of claiming ultimate victory in their feature event on Sunday.
Also on Saturday at Thunderbolt, Corvettes Unlimited presents the Fall American Classics Show; open to all American-made cars and trucks. Admission to this event is also included with purchase of a Rallycross ticket.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.njmp.com. A Family 4-pack, including two adult and two child tickets are available for just $40.
