Atlantic City — Scott Speed likes Atlantic City. The former NASCAR and IndyCar driver has won the past two events at Bader Field, including Atlantic City 1 on Saturday night.
Speed, a Volkswagen Andretti driver, has also won two straight Red Bull Global Rallycross races. He also won the Indianapolis race on July 9th.
The points leader, who is looking to win his third straight champion, will look to get his third straight win on Sunday in Atlantic City II. Speed needed to make a mid-race pass of Patrik Sandell to get the win.
“The start went really well – I went into Turn 1 all by myself,” Speed said. “But then the chaos ensued and we came out in like sixth! We had to put the gloves on and fight, and we ended up shuffling up to third by the end of the first lap.
“Not to take the Joker was a bit of a gamble, because if somebody behind us had tkane it and held us up, it wouldn’t have worked out, but fortunately no one did. I was able to use the Joker on [Sebastian Eriksson] and then track [Sandell] down. It all came down to the past two laps and making no mistakes, and it was a really hard-fought battle.”
Speed finished the course in 8:15.759. His best lap was 52.601.
Sandell ended up finishing second in his Subaru Rally Team USA car. He was 2.706 seconds behind Speed.
Sandell finished the course in 8:18:465.
Steve Arpin was the third-place finisher in his Loenbro Motorsports Rally Car. He was 8.951 seconds behind Speed.
