After months of development and testing, the Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team (SPRT) is ready to prove their mettle at this weekend's season opener of the 2012 Global RallyCross Championship (GRC), at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. Seasoned drivers Dave Mirra, and Sverre Isachsen, as well as Rallycross rookie Bucky Lasek will pilot their race-prepared Subaru WRX STIs against some stiff competition as they race head-to-head on a unique road course utilizing parts of the oval at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Following the HISTORY 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race on May 26, SPRT will attack the custom-built three-quarter-mile Rallycross course, which will be constructed along the front straight and pit road of the historic one and a half-mile superspeedway. Race fans will have a stadium view of all the action as drivers navigate their vehicles through hairpin turns, a series of chicanes, and water features.
