The Red Bull Global Rallycross is slated to come back for its second annual race at RFK from Aug. 14 to 15.

The race will feature “600 horsepower cars tearing around a part tarmac, part dirt track, drifting around sharp turns and flying over a 70-foot jump,” according to race organizers.

Last year’s race winner Patrik Sandell, “Top Gear” host Tanner Foust and 20-time X Games medalist Bucky Lasek are among the racers expected to compete.

“Washington, D.C., proved to be one of our most successful events during the 2014 season, and we’re incredibly excited about returning to the nation’s capital this year,” Red Bull Global Rallycross CEO Colin Dyne said in a statement. “Last year, in our first race ever in the city, we were able to set the attendance records for a standalone event, proof that the area is hungry for more racing action. We look forward to competing in such a fantastic city for years to come.”

Race fans can purchase adult tickets for $25 and youth tickets for $15 online.
