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!
