X Games 15: Brack beats Pastrana to take gold

"Rally is over and it was a fun day for me with it being my first time doing the rally at X Games," said Deegan, a 10-time medalist at X Games. "I had a good time in the car out there ripping around.

"I ended up not getting any practice this morning because they cut it short which didn't help me much, so I went out and hit the jump a little too fast in my prelim and endoed and smashed it a little bit and popped my turbo hose off. So I luckily finished the round and got through and my next round was with [Ken] Block and going off the course all crazy made my turbo hose pop off again.

"With the quick turnaround for the last run against Pastrana, they couldn't get the turbo hose on right and I went out with no power and I came up for the jump and thought it was all or nothing and since I didn't want to crash the car, I went around the jump and just finished the race. There is always next year.

"Up to that point I was kicking butt and I was surprised with my driving. Hopefully, next year, I am in a Ford Fiesta and I can win a medal."

Brack drove brilliantly. The guys he raced had way more experience than him in this event and they both screwed up. The race with Foust was a cracker until Tanner over shot a turn and in the finals Pastrana clipped a barrier and spun during the first lap. I wish both races would have went to the end becasue they were very close and exciting.
