Aug 3, 2011

Los Angeles, Calif. (August 1, 2011) – Motegi Racing came up big at the Summer X Games 17 on the first, second and third place vehicles. Motegi Racing’s first-place Brian Deegan was up against some of the industry’s most formidable RallyCross racers from across the globe at this year’s X-Games. The streets of downtown Los Angeles had been turned into a three-quarter mile street course, a full-fledged RallyCross track. Brian Deegan overcame mechanical issues and ran a near-perfect race and experienced his first X Games RallyCross victory when he snuck past his opponents in the first turn when two cars crashed into each other.

Next to cross the finish line was Motegi’s multi-talented World Rally Champion Tanner Foust, who also placed on the podium finishing a strong second in his Motegi outfitted Ford Fiesta. Foust is a three-time X Games gold medalist and two-time Formula Drift champion. Rounding out the podium was Marcus Gronholm – also a World Rally Champion – that makes a sweep at this years’ X-Games 17.
