X Games Rallycross seemed to be a real life version of the recently released video game Dirt Showdown. A very tight, technical course situated in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles pitting 10 cars, with a combined 5,000 horsepower, against each other for the gold medal.

Crowd favorite, Ken Block was situated in the second row directly behind Loeb for the final race. Sebastian Loeb took the holeshot, while miraculously Ken snuck in at second. A few laps in and Ken would loose his one-second gap behind Loeb to a punctured rear tire.

Reluctant to give up, Ken kept the pedal down and fended off 2011 X Games Rallycross Champion Brian Deegan for the silver medal. Now adding to Ken Block’s medal count at X Games to four, two silver and two bronze.

Adding to the excitement of Ken Block’s Silver Medal is the soon to be released Gymkhana FIVE. Which drops July 9th at 10AM EST.
