Red Bull Global Rallycross drivers Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen are sticking with Subaru.

Lasek and Seattle/Dirtfish 2014 winner Isachsen have renewed multi-year contracts with the manufacturer and will race the full GRC schedule in 2015 as well as the Summer X Games.

Also joining them at select events this season will be action sports legend Travis Pastrana. Subaru says his rallycross schedule will be announced at a later time.

Lasek and Isachsen earned a combined five podiums in 2014 for the Subaru camp. In addition to his Seattle win, Isachsen finished second at Charlotte. Lasek was second at the Summer X Games in Austin and finished third at both Daytona and Las Vegas.

“It was an easy decision for us to keep them on the team,” Subaru motorsport marketing manager Rob Weir said in a statement. “Bucky and Sverre put Subaru on the podium five times last season and continue to play a key role in the development of our rallycross program.

“Both drivers share tremendous pride for the Subaru brand and the success of Subaru Rally Team USA.”

As for Lasek, he’s pleased to continue to help Subaru grow into a regular contender in GRC.

“The team as a whole is like a family and we have worked so hard together the past few years to develop this program and we are winning now, fighting at the top,” he said. “I’m so happy to continue to be a part of this family and the Subaru motorsports heritage.”

The 2015 GRC season begins May 31 in Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida.
