2018C 2019B

The 2019A NASA RallyCross Challenge Season is the eighteenth season of the championship. It started on February 19th, 2019 and will end on April 23rd, 2019. Philip Kraus entered the season as the defending Drivers' Champion, while his team, Red Bull Subaru MRT, returned as the Constructors' Champions.

Due to financial turmoil, NASA was forced to cancel the season after four races due to a low car count. This resulted in several months off for the organization, and the return to the "Generation 3" regulations for 2019B and beyond. No championship titles were awarded, ending the seven season championship streak for Red Bull Subaru MRT.
