“This was an awesome weekend of rallycross for myself,” said Block. “My team did an amazing job getting my Ford Fiesta ST RX43 ready to racing and it felt great to be racing on more gravel and dirt instead of mostly tarmac.”

Meanwhile, Block’s teammate, Nelson Piquet, Jr., took third place and kept his points lead for the series this year.

The next Global Rallycross race will be at the end of August in Florida at the Daytona International Speedway.
