Here’s a collection of photos from the drivers and teams of the Global Rallycross Championship as they prepare for Saturday night’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

Rhys Millen Racing may be ending their relationship with Hyundai at the conclusion of the season, but that hasn’t stopped them from proudly promoting that they’ll be the first team to ever run a Hyundai at LVMS.

Stephan Verdier comes into Saturday’s race seventh in points. He’ll be looking to score his second podium of the season in his No. 12 Motorcity/Disney XD Hyundai, getting his old car back after racing owner Rhys Millen’s Veloster at New Hampshire.

Sverre Isachsen has been enjoying his tour of the United States this year, and Las Vegas is no exception. The three-time European Rallycross champion looks excited to get back on track and take in all that the bright lights of Vegas have to offer.

Here’s a familiar sight: the Best Buy Mobile Ford Fiesta campaigned by Olsbergs MSE. But with Marcus Gronholm still recovering from his injuries at X Games, team principal Andreas Eriksson will be the driver behind the wheel this weekend.

Gronholm won’t be racing at Las Vegas, but he will be attending the event as a spectator. He’s here with fellow Swedes Samuel Hubinette and Per Eklund, who will try to close the gap in points on Gronholm’s teammate Tanner Foust.
