Global Rallycross opened the 2013 season as part of X Games Foz do Iguacu on April 21. A thrilling main event saw newcomer Scott Speed claim a victory in his first-ever rallycross start, passing Toomas Heikkinen on the joker lap in the final corner to take the win. All three podium finishers earned their first X Games medals in their first tries.
Including Speed, the 17-driver field for X Games Munich includes two-time defending series champion Tanner Foust; defending European rallycross champion Timur Timerzyanov; two-time DTM champion and three-time Race of Champions winner Mattias Ekstrom; Dave Mirra, the all-time leader in X Games medals with 24; and all of the stars of the Global Rallycross tour.
