2018A 2018C

The 2018B NASA RallyCross Challenge Season was the 16th season of the championship, and the first season with the "Gen-4" era of regulations. It started on June 5th, 2018, and ended on August 14th, 2018.

Pre-season

After the 2018A season, several regulations changed in NASA RallyCross.

  • Gen-4 regulations were announced, with the series running four-wheel drive vehicles supplied by Ford, Subaru, and Volkswagen.
  • Gearboxes also increase back to six gears, after running two seasons of four speed boxes.
  • All circuits have been discontinued except for Daytona, with the series visiting both of the layouts the track has supplied.
  • BFGoodrich becomes the control tire, after 6 years of an open tire war in the series.
