VW Unveils New Rallycross Liveries

Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross (VARX) has revealed the two new liveries that will adorn its championship winning Beetles GRC.

Last season’s runner up, Tanner Foust, will return with a new Rockstar Energy Drink livery, while champion Scott Speed has a new, permanent livery thanks to Oberto All Natural Jerky and Circle K Convenience Stores.

Speed’s red, white, and green livery is similar to the one that graced his Beetle last season in Seattle, but will stay on the car for the majority of the season.

“I’m super excited to have Oberto on the car this year,” said Speed. “We’ve been working really hard to improve our cars over the off-season, and I can’t wait to get to racing so we can defend our title again.”

Foust and Rockstar, meanwhile, continue their 12 year relationship with a new, darker livery.

“It feels like the 2016 season ended a long time ago, so I’m really eager to get back behind the wheel of this ferocious machine,” said Foust. “Last year we had a lot of great results, and I’m confident that with all our hard off-season effort we can be up at the front of the field again in 2017.”

Last year, VARX earned its first manufacturer’s championship, so the team is eager to get back to racing. The 2017 season starts this April in Memphis and will be followed by another 11 races, including races in Kentucky, Connecticut, and Canada.
