The Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team is rounding into form as evidenced by the Global RallyCross Championship round at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Drivers Sverre Isachsen and Dave Mirra finished third and fourth, respectively, earning Subaru its second straight podium finish after Isachsen's bronze medal finish at X Games L.A.
In the final, both Isachsen and Mirra started from the back of the nine-car grid and expertly avoided the inevitable first-turn carnage. Mirra, fast yet again, was spun out from behind early in the final by rival Scott Speed, dropping him to the back of the pack and earning Speed a black flag stop-n-go penalty. Isachsen then worked his way up to Third overall and his second podium in a row, while Mirra clawed his way back to Fourth overall and his best finish to date in Global RallyCross competition.
"My Subaru was dialed in this weekend, and my crew didn't miss a beat," Mirra explained. "They gave me an amazing car this weekend, and it was great to go out and finish Fourth. I'm certain we would have finished even better if it were not for getting spun out early, but we showed we could bounce back."
