“To be honest, that race was plan A,” Speed said. “It went the way we hope every race does. The Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross Beetle is on rails and super fast, but to be fair, these guys are catching up and it’s getting tight!

“I’m really looking forward to a competitive last half of the season. We’re going to have to be on our A game, but fortunately, we got some great points this weekend, and that gives us the points lead. Now we just have to hold on!”

Speed’s best lap was 52.985 seconds. He finished the course in 8:04.244.

Sebastian Eriksson, who finished fourth in Saturday’s feature, finished second in Sunday’s main. He was 4.574 seconds behind Speed.

Eriksson, the Honda Red Bull OMSE driver, had a best lap of 52.922 seconds. He finished the course in 8:08.818.
