Americas Rallycross (ARX) have today announced an expanded 2019 ARX and ARX2 calendar, including two events in the Midwest at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Gateway Motorsports Park.

“Our new multi-year partners at Mid-Ohio and Gateway Motorsports Park are great additions to our ongoing partnerships with Circuit of The Americas in Austin and the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres in Canada as we expand our presence in North America," said Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of IMG Motorsports (promoter).

The season begins at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on June 8-9. The 10-turn, 0.7-mile ARX circuit will be located in the legendary “keyhole” section, with an aim of providing fans with a view of the entire rallycross course.

ARX will then travel to Gateway Motorsports Park in July. The 1.25-mile oval, just outside of St. Louis, Missouri will mark Gateway’s first-ever rallycross event. 

In August, Trois-Rivieres in Canada will host the ARX and ARX2 series alongside the FIA World Rallycross Championship. 

ARX also returns to Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas on September 28 before concluding the season with a second trip to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Cooper Tires ARX of Mid-Ohio, October 5-6. 

“It’s super important to get these tracks off the ground and to get grassroots rallycross racing off the ground and going,” said Scott Speed, 2018 ARX Supercar Champion. “I think it speaks well for the future of the sport and I feel like the timing is right for this sport to really take off in our country.”
