Temecula, CA (8/1/14) — Mitchell DeJong claims his third win of the Red Bull Global Rallycross Lites season at the Dirt Track at Charlotte.

NBC Sports catches up with Mitchell in an interview at mid-season to talk about the three wins, including a hard fought second place in New York. Watch the Sunday, August 3rd airing on NBC at 4pm ET.
