2021 NRX: ERX Motor Park Preview

Nitro Rallycross Round 2: Minnesota
Date: October 2-3
Location: ERX Motor Park

After a fast weekend and challenging final fight in Salt Lake City, Subaru Motorsports USA returns for Round 2 of Nitro Rallycross this week in Minneapolis, Minnesota! The rolling terrain of ERX Motor Park will host to the first-ever Nitro RX round held outside of Utah, with the Subaru trio of Travis Pastrana, Scott Speed and Andreas Bakkerud aiming to pick up the team’s first victory of the five-round season in their WRX STI rallycross cars.

With a very different track profile than the now-familiar Utah Motorsports Campus, the ERX layout’s wide corners and multiple jumps should provide plenty of passing opportunities and on-track drama. Tune in via the Peacock app in the U.S. and via YouTube livestream in other markets to watch the Subaru team take on the best in the world once again!

Travis Pastrana #199 Subaru WRX STI
Really excited about the pace of our team last weekend in Utah. I’m looking forward to the Minnesota dirt and wide track which should provide for some of the best side by side racing on the circuit!

Scott Speed #41 Subaru WRX STI
The first race was a great feeling and step in my recovery.  Was great to be back racing again and in that competitive environment.  ERX is a much different track so I’m very much looking forward to adapting to it as a driver and hopefully having a clean weekend.  Our cars are fast so we just need to execute! 

Andreas Bakkerud #13 Subaru WRX STI
The ERX track blew my mind when it comes to driving a RX car. I’ve never ever been on a track which has more natural flow. You have fast corners, big jumps, crests, compressions and elevation change!  I think the general racing will be awesome – the track attracts overtakes and passes. I can’t wait to go back there!
