Speed not only has the fastest name in motor sport but he has also established himself as the man to beat in the Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship. He sealed his second successive title in 2016, overhauling rival Tanner Foust at the final round in Los Angeles for Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross. But this is only the latest chapter in the American racer’s versatile racing career.
When Speed made his Formula 1 debut for Scuderia Toro Rosso in 2006, he was the first American driver to race in a grand prix since Michael Andretti in 1993. He made 28 appearances before losing his seat to future multiple world champion Sebastian Vettel, after which Speed spent several seasons in NASCAR before his GRC move. He has also competed in A1GP, IndyCar and Formula E.
