X GAMES 16 - RALLY & SUPER RALLY

This years X Games 16 Rally competition was both dominated by Deegan and Tanner Foust, both with podium wins in Rally and Super Rally.

Deegan and Tanner both drove the 2010 Ford Fiesta’s with engines pumping out 600 horsepower and hit 60 mph in 2 seconds. For the qualifier Deegan went head to head with Travis PastranaKen Block

It was a close race when Deegan took on PastranaDeegan was in the lead by a few seconds, but Pastrana pushed his car to it’s limits trying to catch up to Deegan, and got caught up on the top of the Coliseum pillars.

Brian has been looking forward to taking on Pastrana all year so the qualifying win which led him into the finals was huge for the General!

As the finals kicked off, Deegan was running a fast lap time in the Rally finals and missed his corner turn which placed Deegan into second place as his team member Tanner Foust took first!

Deegan’s Rally crew prepped his car for the next battle of Super RallyTravis Pastrana’s and Sverre Isachsen’s cars needed new engines and Dave Mirra’s required a new rear differential. All of these racers could not get their Rally cars fixed in time for the Super Rally race.

As the engines started and the Rally cars took off from the start line, Deegan got the jump off the line ahead of Foust and Stephan Verdier in the final. Foust had the inside and forced his position to make the pass into second and pushed Deegan into third. As race fell to the last lap Deegan moved his way into second trailing his team member Foust for the finish which gave Brian his second Silver Medal of the day!
