On June 30, Hot Wheels will attempt to make history at X Games Los Angeles 2012. In the Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare, modeled after the new Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare track set, Green and Yellow Drivers will simultaneously race through a harrowing six-story vertical loop in a first-of-its kind challenge.
As part of a new relationship with ESPN, the Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare will be broadcast nationally on ABC and globally on ESPN’s international networks, giving fans everywhere a front row seat to the action. Fans around the world will watch two drivers circle through a six-story tall loop, hitting a G-force similar to what fighter jet pilots experience in flight.
Driving through the Double Loop Dare will be Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy. Foust, three-time X Games Gold medalist and two-time Formula Drift Champion, helped Hot Wheel set the world-record for distance jump at last year’sIndianapolis 500. Although he’s new to Hot Wheel,Tracy has over 20 years of dare-devil experience as one ofHollywood’s leading stunt men.
