I’ve held off on my coverage of the final round of Global RallyCross (GRC) in Las Vegas. I didn’t feel a lot of pressure to get this article put together because my fellow contributor, Scott, put together some pretty extensive coverage. There was no point for me to reiterate what he’d already covered.
Last week during SEMA, the Global RallyCross Championship held their 2012 season finale. The event took place in the Gold Lot of the the Las Vegas Convention Center. The last post concerning this event was coverage of the qualifying runs, this post is about the real stuff.

Good morning and a happy Tuesday to you. We are a day late due to technology issues yesterday but nothing has changed.

I just so happen to have some more photos from Formula Drift Round 5.

Sometimes my inner nerd gets the best of me and I make decisions that are less then wise. Was it wise to got the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” the night before Formula D round 5 started? The answer is yes, even though though that means operating on 3 hours of sleep. Anyway, let’s get down to the brass tax of qualifying for round 5.
