The 2012 U.S. Rallycross Series marks a return to rallycross for Rally America to the New Jersey Motorsports Park. The last round of the Series takes place on November 17th, 2012.

Rallycross features rally-style cars jumping and sliding on a road course made up of 70% pavement and 30% gravel.  Five drivers line up to start at once, piloting high-horsepower compact cars through race traffic over a challenging short course that features jumps, unbanked turns, hills and transitions between pavement and gravel.  Each car must also take a “joker lap” at some point during their heat.  A “joker lap” is a small detour normally over a jump that adds a level of unpredictability to the heat’s outcome by changing a driver’s strategy in an instant.
