We made the trip to X Games 15 this weekend to catch some of rally’s premier racers battle for gold including Subaru Rally Team U.S.A.’s Ken Block, Travis Pastrana and Dave Mirra. Kenny Brack, former IRL and Indy 500 champion, took the gold after a rough day for Team Subaru. Travis Pastrana battled with Brack in the final race, but on the final lap, Travis crashed into the wall, leaving him with a silver medal. Ken Block was disqualified after a mechanical issue forced him to skip the jump and cross FMXer Brian Deegan’s track in the quarterfinal. Dave Mirra was also defeated in the quarterfinal by gold-winner and underdog Kenny Brack. Though it was a disappointing day for our favorite, Team Subaru, it was still a great day of racing at X Games 15 and we can’t wait to get back next year!
