Ken Block's inaugural outing in his new Ford Fiesta Rally car took place on Thursday ahead of today's opening of the Sno*Drift Rally America Series, and the crew at Monster have released some footage of Block's maiden run.

After the jump, you'll find a two and a half minute clip of Block pounding down the icy roads of Gladwin, MI, blowing past trees at triple-digit speeds and topping out in sixth gear during one insanely long straight.

Live updates from the event are available at Rally America's website. Follow along today and tomorrow, but in the meantime... jump.
