The 2012 X Games are currently going on in Los Angeles and
tomorrow at 2pm, Travis Pastrana and Bryce Menzies will take to the X Games
rallycross track for practice – marking the first time that there has been a
Chrysler Group vehicle in the well-known extreme action sports event.  Pastrana will pilot his familiar #199 Red
Bull Racing Dodge Dart while Menzies will drive the #99 Dart rally car that was
driven (unsuccessfully) by Felipe Albuquerque at the last Global Rallycross
event in Texas.

The X Games will begin for the Dodge Dart Rallycross Team on
Saturday at 2pm when the teams all hit the track for a 2 hour practice session
on the “short course”, followed by a 1 hour long seeding session (on the same
short track) in which the two Darts will find out who they will run against in
their first round heat races. 

On Sunday,
Pastrana, Menzies and the rest of the X Games Rallycross field will finally get
to get some practice time in on the full course at 9am with the first round
heat races scheduled to start around noon. 
The first round heat races for the X Games Global RallyCross group is
scheduled to run from 12:00 to 2:15pm with the last chance qualifier (LCQ)
slated to run at 2:30.  The 2012 X Games
Rallycross final race is scheduled to start at 3:30pm.

The 2012 X Games are currently going on in Los Angeles and
tomorrow at 2pm, Travis Pastrana and Bryce Menzies will take to the X Games
rallycross track for practice – marking the first time that there has been a
Chrysler Group vehicle in the well-known extreme action sports event.  Pastrana will pilot his familiar #199 Red
Bull Racing Dodge Dart while Menzies will drive the #99 Dart rally car that was
driven (unsuccessfully) by Felipe Albuquerque at the last Global Rallycross
event in Texas.

The majority of the 2012 X Games is being covered on ESPN3
via Xbox 360 and the Xbox Live ESPN app but those who are relying on normal
television coverage to see Pastrana, Menzies, Brian Deegan (2011 X Games
Rallycross winner), Rhys Millen, Ken Block and Tanner Foust on the X Games
track – you will have to wait until 5pm Sunday night when the racing is set to
air on ESPN.

Hopefully, Travis Pastrans and his #199 2013 Dodge Dart
Rallycross car have better luck in LA than they did in the first two events of
the season.  Pastrana left the final race
early in the first event of the season with mechanical issues and he failed to
qualify for the finals at the second leg of the GRC season.
