RHYS MILLEN CLAIMS THE VICTORY FOR TEAM HYUNDAI AT RED BULL GLOBAL RALLYCROSS
Rhys Millen masterfully piloted his Hyundai Veloster rallycross racer to victory in the Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship race in Los Angeles last Sunday afternoon. Millen had an extremely successful event overall, earning pole position in the final and holding his position for the entire race, refusing to be passed despite fierce competition. Millen had great momentum for the Sunday race, having topped many competitors in earlier practice runs and previous heats.
The win came on Day Two of the weekend double-header on the waterfront at the Port of Los Angeles. The Hyundai/Rhys Millen team continues to build momentum with recent victories on both east and west coast venues in the latter half of the season.
“We’re extremely proud of our Hyundai team’s second win of the 2014 season, coming fresh off our victory in Daytona just a few short weeks ago,” said Millen in a post-race interview. “It’s amazing; we just believe in the car and myself and the crew. We brought that momentum to Los Angeles, qualifying fastest yesterday, winning the semi-final and then the main without being passed. I couldn’t be more proud of our effort.”
The Los Angeles GRC race is the closest of the season to both Hyundai and Rhys Millen Racing’s corporate headquarters, making the local victory very satisfying for fans and employees alike.
