Scott Speed hopes for RallyCross repeat
Airing It Out
It was a weekend of firsts for Scott Speed in Foz do Iguau. Before his debut in RallyCross, the seasoned NASCAR and Formula One driver had never caught air while driving.
Scott Speed had a lot to learn going into his inaugural RallyCross race. Dealing with the excessive dust and dirt that got kicked up on the course at Foz topped the list of lessons.
