“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Americas Rallycross through the 2019 season,” said DirtFish Owner, Steve Rimmer. “With the rebirth of rallycross as a sport in North America during 2018, ARX was able to see significant growth in their fanbase and we are pleased that DirtFish was a large part of that success. With our motorsports program being so strong in the championship last season, our current vision is to share our rallycross expertise and knowledge through the new ARX2 Mentorship Program and open new doors for young drivers who are cultivating their driving careers."
