Holy Apexes! X Games Rallycross Rocks the House - Spinout

With Global Rallycross points leader Marcus Gronholm viewing the proceedings from a nearby hospital bed after slamming into a light post, fellow Finn Toomas “Topi” Heikkinen nursing a fractured ankle, and Travis Pastrana crashed out in the first round of qualifying heats, the X-Games Rallycross was brutal on body and soul . . . and all this before the final.

In the final, eight-time WRC champion Sebastien Loeb’s Citroën car rocketed out front, and he drove six pristine laps for the daylight victory. Hoonigan Ken Block took home the silver, hot-shoeing the final three laps with a flat rear tire that left his Fiesta turning and accelerating on a bare metal rim at times. He finished a scant 0.42 seconds ahead of defending X-Games Rallycross champion and Ford Fiesta teammate Brian Deegan.

“It’s great to have Seb here,” Block quipped. “But I knew him coming here meant one thing: that he’d be near the top of the podium, which is the way it is.”

This was the most prolific field ever in rallycross with the likes of Tanner Foust, Rhys Millen, Samuel Hubinette, and David Higgins all vying for the gold.
