Held in partnership with Caesars Entertainment which is the host venue, presenting sponsor, and partner of the event, the action will take place at the LINQ Hotel & Casino during the annual SEMA Show, the premier automotive specialty products trade show in the world.

For the first time in series history, four drivers enter the finale with a chance at the championship: Ken Block, winner of the 2013 Las Vegas race, former Formula 1 stars Scott Speed and Nelson Piquet Jr., and defending GRC Lites champion Joni Wiman. The four championship-eligible drivers have combined for four victories, 16 podiums, and eight poles so far in 2014. All four drivers are within 30 points of one another entering the final race, meaning that the best finisher among them in Las Vegas will likely take home the season-long championship.

Other drivers planning to compete include 2012 Las Vegas winner Tanner Foust, multiple X Games gold medalists Brian Deegan and Bucky Lasek, current GRC Lites champion Mitchell DeJong, and Sverre Isachsen, winner of the series’ most recent race at DirtFish Rally School in Snoqualmie, WA.

“Caesars Entertainment Corporation has a rich history of promoting motorsport events in Las Vegas, and we’re proud to become a part of that heritage,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne. “From Formula 1 to Evel Knievel’s fountain jump, Caesars represents the gold standard for event promotion in the city. We are greatly looking forward to ending our 2014 season on a high note with our first event at The LINQ.”

The parking lot adjacent to The LINQ Promenade and at the base of the High Roller – the world’s tallest observation wheel – will be transformed into a high-octane motorsports playground, featuring dirt, asphalt and tabletop jumps signature to the series. Specific track layout information will be released in the coming weeks.
