Hot Wheels is one of the sponsors of the X Games and
they have a huge stunt planned!

At the 2011 Indianapolic 500, Hot Wheels went for the
world record jump with their Fearless At The 500 feat.

For 2012, they have a huge loop set-up here in Los Angeles
that resembles the Double Dare Snare loop. The stunt
will be performed Saturday, June 30, 2012.

I did a drive by and here is my preview of the stunt.

On the hot wheel structure. Car didn't make the jump, hit the edge of the ramp with the windshield, flipped and caught fire. Driver got out, guess he had a broken ankle and few other injuries.

Oh I know what you're talking about. That was a practice run for Sunday's rally event. The hot wheels team make the loop in about 20 minutes on ABC

This is the jump from the other day.
Thanks for posting. Its astonishing and a miracle that the only injury he sustained was a fractured ankle. Did y'all see Bob Burnquist's crash on the Mega Ramp practice on Tuesday? It was painful to watch.

It is at the end of this video:

I watched it live on TV today...loved it! :thumbsup:

It seems that there was enough drama in the preparations alone for Mattel to perpetuate their promos.
