X-Games Behind the Scenes

This past weekend the annual X-Games went down in Los Angeles. Here’s a quick behind the scenes look at the rally pits before the competition and the NOS Energy Drink afterparty. Formula D drivers Tanner Foust (2 Gold medals), Samuel Hubinette (Bronze in Super Rally), Andrew Comrie-Picard (bronze in rally), and Stephan Verdier (semi-finals in super rally) did a great job Saturday against the rest of the field of competitors including Kenny Brack, Dave Mirra, Ken Block, and Travis Pastrana.

Tanner’s Fiesta looks like a spaceship. Too bad these things don’t come in all-wheel drive turbo engines here in the US.

Inside the cockpit with Tanner. This was his expression after I asked him what all those buttons do.

Pastrana’s Subaru has some problems this weekend, but he did great overall at the X-Games on 2-wheels.

NOS Energy Drinks threw an afterparty for special guests hosted by sponsored driver Andrew Comrie-Picard. The venue was perfect with a skyline view of the Downtown Los Angeles. Food was served and drinks poured while guests were able to dance the night away (I filmed a few classic dance highlights that will be uploaded on my YouTube page soon).

Glad I took the S90 out for nights like this

    I am indeed thankful to you for providing us with this invaluable research. My spouse and I are surely grateful, quite frankly the answers we needed.
