X Games 15: Ford Fiesta, Kenny Brack get the gold

Filed under: Motorsports, Performance, Hatchback, Ford, Subaru

X Games 15 Crowns New Rally King - Click above for high-res image gallery

We're not going to say we told you so - because we didn't - but we are going to go ahead and say we're totally not shocked that former Indy 500 champ Kenny Brack just won some X Games gold. After all, we're still a touch weak in the knees from our little ride along with him and his atomic weasel Ford Fiesta rally car last Thursday. First thing's first, what a coup for Ford. Beating Subaru at X Games is like beating Muhammad Ali in the 1960s. It just doesn't happen very often. Turns out that the big jump that had everyone at Ford a little more worried than they were publicly letting on just wasn't an issue. The hopped up Fiestas did great. In fact all three Ford drivers (Brack, Foust and Deegan) made it to the semifinals, along with Subaru's Travis Pastrana.

What a great intro to the sport of rallying for Kenny Brack. It looked as if Foust was going to beat Brack heads up, but then Tanner spun out and Brack was pitted against Pastrana and his Subaru in the final. Pastrana is ahead after one lap and everyone had pretty much concluded that he was about to win his umpteenth X Game event. But at the start of the second lap, Pastrana goes wide, spins, hits the back left side of his car against a barrier and can't continue. Ten years after winning the the Indy 500, Kenny Brack wins X Games Rally gold. Good job, Kenny.

Follow the jump to watch video of the finals contest at this year's 2009 X Games.

lol He was dragging the rear bumper after that last jump for the rest of the race. Was a good victory though and well deserved. But there will always be those people that will ask "What would of happened if the Subaru didn't wreck?" They were pretty much neck and neck for most of the race and I for one would have much rather seen a nail biter ending than someone wrecking out of the race. But we can't always have that.

'bout time Ford reps it in the X-Games. Subies are cool, but they are getting so played out.

I don't think it would have mattered, Kenny was getting faster each run, but to have both hot Subie drivers screw-up was unusual.

I watched all the races and it was awesome. It was so great to see the Fiesta's advance many times. And that subbie didnt really wreck, he mis-calculated the turn which is very narrow and basically got stuck between the walls. I was freaking out when I saw the rear bumper hanging off the Fiesta, I thought they were done for. The Fiesta's went airborn and landed beautifully. I was so happy when they got the gold, I wanted to post stuff immediately about it but I was out.

Yea and sucks for ken block that he flipped, didn't expect that from him.

They were under some pressure like "we can't let the fiestas win..." and they botched it

Perfect explanation to why they both screwed up..
