TANNER FOUST VICTORIOUS IN TROIS-RIVIERES
Andretti Rallycross’ Tanner Foust and Cabot Bigham captured a thrilling one-two finish in the ARX of Canada, Round 4 of the 2019 ARX Supercar Championship.
Foust became the fourth different winner in four rounds this season at the famous Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres venue by claiming the hole-shot from the outside of the three-wide front row of the grid in the final.
In the No. 34 Rockstar Energy Andretti Volkswagen Beetle R, Foust led the final for all the laps bar one in the six-lap race, only overtaken by championship leader, Subaru Motorsport USA’s Scott Speed when Foust took an earlier joker lap to fend off his teammate, Bigham, who took the victory in semi-final one, the first race win of his ARX Supercar career.
“To be fair, the Subaru team were the fastest here. They were faster than all of the world cars [FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy], faster than our cars, so it really felt like being an underdog all weekend as it has all this whole year, which makes the win even sweeter and to come out one-two [finish with teammate Cabot Bigham, in. second]. I mean, Volkswagen putting up all their hardware from last year, it was very gracious of them to do that, but they're well-engineered, very fast cars and then you combine it with a great team with Andretti and you still have a competitive machine - even against the Goliaths. It is an awesome feeling, I haven't felt a victory so sweet in a really long time, so I'm loving it.”
