Congrats to Formula DRIFT champion Tanner Foust for taking the bronze medal in the X Games 15 Rally competition. This is his third X Games Rally medal in a row. Foust stepped into a new vehicle for this event piloting a Ford Fiesta. Kenny Brack took home the gold while Travis Pastrana took silver.
Filmer Andy Laputka has put together a great video that compares drifting and action sports through the eyes of professional BMX riders, Chad Kagy and Scotty Cranmer. Formula DRIFT drivers gave these BMX pro’s a shotgun ride along at Wall Speedway during the Round 3: The Gauntlet event weekend and the BMX guys returned the favor by taking them behind the scenes at the local BMX/skate park, The Incline Club.
Formula DRIFT drivers Ryan Tuerck, Vaughn Gittin Jr., Chris Forsberg, and even judge Tony Angelo took up the offer and tested out the foam pit. A comparison was made with Formula DRIFT and drifting being the next action sport…could we possibly see drifting in the X-games?
