It’s a “high pressure art” that isn’t easy to master as the Subaru team knows well.
Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team drivers Sverre Isachsen and Dave Mirra were able to finish third and fourth respectively, earning Subaru their second straight podium finish. Isachsen finished with a Bronze medal the weekend prior at X Games Los Angeles. It’s been an uphill battle as they compete with a strong Ford Fiesta ST team.
