2013 Global Rallycross: Final Races

The 2013 Global Rallycross finals at the Festival Grounds across from the Luxor ended Thursday, the champions have been crowned, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was onsite to document the end of the 2013 racing season.

Donoghue reports that it was an American sweep, with Ken Block (#43) of the United States winning the 10-lap finale in his Hoonigan Racing Ford, Tanner Foust (#34) of the United States the runner-up and Travis Pastrana (#199) of the United States finishing third.

Toomas Heikkinen (#57) of Finland won the 2013 championship in his Oldsberg MSE Ford, and Joni Wiman (#93) of Finland won the Lites finale, so his inaugural season was a perfect six wins in six races.
