Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team to Compete at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, July 11
On July 11, Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team drivers Bucky Lasek, Dave Mirra and Sverre Isachsen will race head-to-head against a pack of international stars at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for round four of the 2013 Global RallyCross Championship (GRC). The trio will each pilot their 600hp ’13 Subaru WRX STI Rallycross cars on a custom dirt and tarmac course. The team is eager for another run after team leader and three-time European Rallycross Champion Sverre Isachsen qualified third-fastest and then fifth-fastest at the previous double-header round in Munich, Germany. Isachsen was set to finish fourth overall in the Final at Munich before being spun out from behind by another competitor on the final lap.

New Ford Raptor Nationals Event in Arizona Explored 297 Miles of Arizona Desert
The first-annual Raptor Nationals in Arizona presented by Roush Off-Road covered 297 miles of Arizona desert and included participants from all over the Southwest, Canada, Texas, Oregon and as far as Ohio. Fast fire roads, twisty tight mountain roads, high desert roads lined with pinion trees, red sands of Sedona’s red rocks, white sand wash roads and pavement sections highlighted the course. “We kicked off the event with an open house at the brand-new Addictive Desert Designs facility in Mesa on Thursday where there was a full vendor midway,” said Jason Cobb, Raptor Nationals event promoter. “Friday, we gave a drivers school for those who wanted to learn more about their Raptors capabilities. Then the two-day 297-mile trip ended on Sunday at the KC HiLites factory with a fabulous BBQ. We were really happy to have Roush, VORR and Sanderson Ford with us on the run.”
