The Viking Warrior takes 3rd

After learning that all three cars would be placed in the same heat race, the Subaru X PUMA Rallycross team was concearned that Vegas had brought a stroke of bad luck. With only the first two of five cars advancing to the finals, at least one of the zombie cats would need to advance through the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ). As it turned out, Sverre Isachsen would finish 2nd with Bucky Lasek and Dave Mirra left to battle in the LCQ.

Bucky shot off the line with a great start holding one of the top spots to advance to the finals. Dave Mirra got a little wide in the dirt corner and would have to battle from the back of the pack. Coming over the table top jump, Dave collided with a car slowed by a mechanical problem, leaving him out of the finals and limping back to the garage.

Battling with some of the best rallycross drivers in the world, Bucky Lasek ran a clean final race finishing 8th. This marked his best finish for the year. Issachsen battled from the midle of the pack to make a thrilling pass on the table top jump during the final lap. This pass put him in 3rd place and onto the podium for the first time this season. Sverre showed that he belongs with the top racers in the GRC and hopes to have more great results at the next race that kicks off the SEMA auto show on October 30th.
