Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross Teammates Share a Training Secret

How do Global Rallycross champions stay in shape? You can see their workout here.

Tanner Foust does a pretty good job of Tom Sawyer-ing his Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross teammate Scott Speed into mowing the lawn.

These guys claimed the top two spots at this weekend’s Indianapolis GRC event, with Speed taking first and Foust coming in second. This isn’t the first time this season the pair have taken the one-two finish. The Volkswagen team’s hard work and consistency have put VW at the top of the manufacturer standings. Foust is at the top of the driver championship standings and Speed is currently ranked third.

If you’ve never heard of these guys, find a chance to watch the Global Rallycross series and see them in action! A GRC car is essentially a production car that’s been tuned up and modified to achieve ridiculous horsepower, land 70-foot jumps, and handle car-to-car contact throughout a rugged and varied course.

The Volkswagen GRC cars are VW Beetles with 560 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque. Foust and Speed can rocket these Beetles from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds.

The next event is 8/12/17 in Atlantic City, NJ- just a four-hour drive from Canton, if you want to see it live and in-person! It promises to be an action-packed, exciting evening of motorsport.
