Red Bull Global Rallycross returns to action this weekend, visiting New York for the first time for Volkswagen Rallycross NY.

The event, to be held at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on July 19-20, will be televised on Sunday, July 20 at 2PM ET on your local NBC affiliate. Veteran motorsports announcers Brian Till and Tommy Kendall will call the action, with Kristen Kenney reporting from the paddock and track.

After scoring the first win of his Red Bull GRC career at last month’s Volkswagen Rallycross DC, Patrik Sandell leads an established crowd of rallycross superstars into competition on a brand-new, purpose-built .467 mile course. Following Sandell into battle are two-time series champion Tanner Foust, X Games Austin medalist Bucky Lasek, defending GRC Vegas winner Ken Block, and former Formula 1 drivers Scott Speed and Nelson Piquet Jr., who are separated by only a single point for the championship lead.

GRC Lites will also return to action in New York. Coming off of two straight victories, Mitchell DeJong looks to make it a hat trick for Olsbergs MSE in the spec class. OMSE teammate Kevin Eriksson will lead a class of returning drivers, while Pedro Piquet, the younger brother of Nelson Piquet Jr., will make his rallycross debut.

Volkswagen Rallycross NY will be broadcast on Sunday, July 20 at 2PM ET on your local NBC affiliate. Tickets are still available for purchase at The race can be viewed live or on demand after broadcast on NBC Sports Live Extra, located at
