Under beautiful sunny skies, the Global RallyCross at Charlotte Motor Speedway got underway Sunday afternoon. Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen both had great heat races and advanced directly to the final. Sverre Isachsen was in a tight battle with Brian Deegan, while Sverre and spotter Robert Vaa debated trying to pass. If Sverre made it cleanly past Deegan, he would gain a better start position in the final. However, with both top spots advancing they decided it was not worth the risk. In Bucky's heat, his #81 Subaru WRX STI was starting on the back row. Bucky knew aggressive tactics would be required to advance. When the signal went green, he launched his 600 horsepower Subaru and got to work. Bucky quickly position himself in the #2 spot and confidently stayed there until the checkered flag was waved on lap 6.
