The ESPN X Games are coming to the LA Coliseum July 29 to August 1, and for the first time, SuperRally will be coming with them. Americans might know SuperRally as the Harley Davidson events, but it's actually a renaming of the European sport of RallyCross, which looks for all the world like motocross but with cars.

The field begins with 12 drivers who will do time trial runs to decide the grids for three elimination races. According to ESPN, "The winner of the Elimination heats and the highest seeded driver who has not yet advanced will compete in a four-lap last chance qualifier (LCQ). The winner of the LCQ will join the winners of the Elimination heat races in the five-lap final race."

We're not quite sure how that's going to work, but we're sure there'll be a lot of wheelspin, jumps and flying dirt, which is really what this is all about anyway. Tickets for the X Games go on sale June 24. Thanks for the tip, Joe!

      So is this in ADDITION to the normal super special stage? Or a replacement? Hoping it's in addition to! When are they going to have a proper special stage out of a stadium? THAT would be awesome!

        This is in addition to the normal crossover-style super special stage. The Super Rally will be held in the evening after the super special stage. What isn't clear is where the super special stage will be held, I would assume it is also at the Coliseum, but maybe not.

      If you've ever played the RallyCross events in Dirt 2, you know exactly how it works...

        And that this exact scenario is in the game, i.e. racing in the Colosseum.

      So basically it is like what they've been doing but at the Colosseum and with a bunch of cars of track at the same time?
