GoRacingTV Minute – U.S. Rallycross #3 at NJMP Sat. morning update

The 3rd and final round of the inaugural U.S. Rallycross Championship at the New Jersey Motorsports Park Rallycross is November 6-7! A race consists of five rally style cars jumping and sliding on a road course made up of pavement AND gravel. Five drivers line up to start at once, piloting high-horsepower compact cars through race traffic over a challenging short course that features jumps, unbanked turns, hills and transitions between pavement and gravel. Each car must also take a “Joker” lap at some point during their heat. A Joker Lap is a small detour – normally over a jump – that adds a level of unpredictability to the heat’s outcome by changing a driver’s strategy in an instant.
