SAN PEDRO, Calif. — official release — Rhys Millen became the second multiple winner in the Supercar class this year Sunday during the second day of the Red Bull Global Rallycross Los Angeles, held at the Port of Los Angeles.

The only doubleheader of the series’ 2014 season, the race served as the seventh and eighth rounds of the championship and a return to the sport’s home base.

The first points-paying round took place on Friday and Saturday, with the remaining racing taking place in Sunday’s show. Scott Speed dominated the first round in the No. 77 Volkswagen Polo R, posting the second-fastest time in qualifying before winning both heats on the way to winning the final.

Millen was the star of the show on Sunday, qualifying third, winning his semifinal and taking a dominant victory over Ken Block and Joni Wiman in the main event.

“To sum it up, it’s been testing,” Millen said of his recent success. “We’ve had time to go to the events, not only to compete, but to go a week early and actually develop the car. We found the right combination in Charlotte, got it right in Daytona, and followed it up this weekend. So really it’s just hard work and sweat that’s got the car running fast.”

Mitchell DeJong won Sunday’s GRC Lites finale, usi g the joker on the last lap to win Sunday’s final by .04 of a second.
