Daytona 500 winner Austin Cindric will contest this weekend‘s Nitro Rallycross double header at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, joining fellow NASCAR Cup Series driver Chase Elliott in the field.
Cindric is no stranger to rallycross, having previously contested the discipline‘s second tier in what was then known as GRC Lites in 2015. There he claimed four wins en route to second in the standings. He also made a pair of appearances for Bryan Herta Rally Sport in Global Rallycross‘s supercar category in 2017, taking a best result of fourth.
In securing Cindric for this weekend, Nitro Rallycross will have an active Daytona 500 winner and Cup series champion both in its field for the very first time.
