Let's Get This Started
Sverre Isachsen gets the 10-second signal before a race Saturday at the Global Rallycross Championship stop at Bristol Motor Speedway. Browse through our gallery of photos from Round 5 of the GRC season.
Ken Block had the fastest lap in seeding early Saturday and won Heat 1A to earn his choice of front row positions in the final.
Bucky Lasek flies over the jump Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway, but he couldn't make it out of the last-chance qualifier and into the final.
Scott Speed ran into mechanical trouble on the second lap of the last-chance qualifier race and was unable to finish.
Bristol Motor Speedway's high banked turns gave Sverre Isachsen and his fellow drivers a new type of course never before seen in the Global Rallycross Championship.
Brian Deegan thought his car was totaled in Heat 2A, but his crew got the Ford Fiesta ready to race in the LCQ. Deegan won that and then finished third in the main event Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Liam Doran finished second in Heat 2B to advance to the final, where bad luck hit the British driver as he didn't finish, nor complete a lap.
Dave Mirra didn't finish Heat 2B and his day of racing ended after a fifth-place finish in the last-chance qualifier race.
Joni Wiman, front, races to victory, followed by Austin Dyne in the GRC Lites final Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

While others got squeezed out on the second corner of the first turn, Toomas Heikkinen, right, took advantage to slip past for the lead he would never relinquish in the main event Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Nobody was going to catch Toomas "Topi" Heikkinen on Saturday during the Global Rallycross Championship Round 5 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Topi On Top Again
Now this is becoming a familiar sight on the GRC circuit this season: Topi Heikkinen raises the trophy for winning at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Can you tell who won? Heikkinen celebrates his victory Saturday between a less enthusiastic Ken Block, left, and Brian Deegan, right.
Glad For Dad
Even though he finished second in Bristol, Block is still No. 1 with his kids.
