In a brilliant marketing move, ESPN2 has announced that past World Rally Chmapion Colin McRae & long time co-driver Nicky Grist will team up again for the X-games. Arguably the most recognizable name in rally (in North America) Mcrae is sure to draw more attention to these events. While motocross star Travis Pastrana has been spectacular, it will be interesting to see how his talent stacks up against McRae’s considerable experience. Expect to see the largest crowds ever seen at a North American Rally.
Thanks to Jalopnik for tipping us on this one.
