PASADENA, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Bluebeam® Rallycross driver and Global Rallycross (GRC) points leader Toomas “Topi” Heikkinen will attempt to win a record-setting sixth consecutive race this Sunday on “The Dirt Track” at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, when the GRC season reconvenes after a month-long hiatus. Though there are two more races scheduled for the 2013 GRC season, Topi needs just one more point to secure the 2013 GRC championship, which he can earn by simply starting the final round on Sunday. The young Finn’s dominance has been so great this year that ESPN has been running a poll to vote for which of his competitors will put an end to his five-race winning streak, including motorsports stars like Travis Pastrana and Tanner Foust, the defending two-time GRC champion who is currently a distant second in the driver standings.
“This week is all about trying to win the championship”
“This week is all about trying to win the championship,” said Heikkinen. “I am confident in my Olsbergs MSE Ford Fiesta ST car and think that I have the best car and team out there. It is always a battle, but I am very happy to be on top right now.”
“We began this season knowing that anything is possible. Topi has broken so many records, he clearly demonstrated that when he hits the track, there are no limits,” said Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software President and CEO. “With the season title within reach, he will no doubt close out strong and on top.”
GRC Round 8: Charlotte Motor Speedway is taking place September 22nd at 4:30 PM EDT and will be broadcast on ABC. For continued updates on Topi’s performance, go to www.bluebeamrally.com or follow Topi on Facebook or Twitter.
