Scott Speed Earns Third X Games Gold Medal in Austin, TX

June 7, 2015

– For the second weekend in a row, Speed found himself on top of the Global Rallycross qualifying charts

– The 10-lap battle secured the California-native’s third X Games gold medal

“It was a crazy final race, definitely the most gratifying of my career from the fact that it just took so much work, not only from myself, but from the whole Volkswagen Andretti team. I’m sure the show for the X Games fans was amazing, I know I cannot wait to get back home and watch it. It was a true testament to the Beetle because it took a beating out there. Ideally it would have been nice to just get through turn 1 on the inside and just check away from the field, but that didn’t happen. I’d much rather win X Games Gold that way, it was a dog fight and when you are able to close on the win after such a battle, it’s an incredible feeling.
