The Red Bull Global Rallycross returns to action this weekend at Los Angeles with a doubleheader weekend (show to air on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET on NBC), and the usual 12-car grid increases to a season-high 15 in the Supercars category.

Subaru Rally Team USA brings a four-car lineup to the race. Full season drivers Sverre Isachsen and Bucky Lasek return after missing the Washington, D.C. round, while Travis Pastrana and David Higgins make their first regular season starts of the year in two further Subaru WRX-STIs. Isachsen and Lasek will run the 2015-spec Subaru. Further details are linked here, via the GRC website.

Meanwhile World Stage Racing makes a leap into Red Bull GRC with Brian Wong in the No. 89 Rhys Millen Racing Hyundai Veloster. Wong has one GRC Lites start in the past. That full release is linked here.

Here’s the Spotters Guide for this weekend’s races, in both GRC Supercars and GRC Lites. Note the SH Rallycross No. 07 Ford Fiesta ST, driven by Nelson Piquet Jr., will have both WIX Filters and HYDROXYCUT primary sponsors for the two races.
