Is there any chance to meet the drivers before the race? Specifically the Subaru ones!

I'll be there as early as I can Saturday.

I just looked at the ESPN2 listings for DISH and see no mention of the event, unless they are just planning to show highlights on SportCenter.

I have Optimum Cable (Cablevision), and my guide shows June 10th @ 1 AM on ESPN2 "Auto Racing" and the description is Global Rallycross Championship.

That is outdated. No Pikes Peak this year.

Everythings great, car had very minor damage. It's a real bummer because I really wanted to make the Main but at least I had fun and went out with style

You watch those guys carry their cameras around the track on a really hot track for the day and you will want my point and shoot.

Yeah Liam's motor was done and he wasn't going to take the jump but changed his mind last minute on me but that's racing. He apologized any way. I got a nice grind out of it

I wondered what happened. The was some speculation that your rear axle gave way just before the jump, but it looked like it was an avoidance maneuver. I say you tell everybody you wanted the first TV documented "rail slide"! Ken Block has nothing on you!

Good job on the split second abort decision. Would have sucked to crash nose first into that metal ramp. As a bonus you got awesome (unintentional) grind footage as a result.

If the car in front made it, I bet he could have if he stepped on it after he downshifted. He may have bumped the car in front in the air though. But the risk of damage is so much higher...

I like the big jump aspect of the race, but I think they should make it a "tabletop" jump rather than a "Gap". That way in situations like this, the driver does not have to bail out.

I'm not being a hater or anything, but if that really is you, BLasek81, could you post a picture of you holding up a note showing your screen name or something, upload it to imgur for proof?

This is a great thread and it's nice to see you talking to us, I just don't want this thread deleted by a mod for lack of proof (Also, I'm sure some of us are dying to know if that's really you )
