    BAM!
    Foust ended up paying for it by losing the rear bumper, though he'd make up for it later by winning both Rally and Super Rally.

    Duplessis VS Mirra in the first heat
    Duplessis actually qualified higher than Mirra but because of bad planning on the part of the course designers they literally had to change the layout minutes before the first race. Both Mirra and Duplessis had to go first, trying to figure out the course on a moments notice.Unfortunately, Duplessis got a red flag after a wrong turn ending his chance for X Games' gold.

    Don't be greedy
    Approaching the jump: The speed for perfectly clearing the jump, while not overshooting, was a relatively calm 37 mph, though others took it wayyyy faster, making things interesting for their mechanics.

    Flawed Design
    Due to the course design, the real action wasn't until they both closed in on the jump.

    Super Rally
    Super Rally was where the fun was at. Four cars, a jump and mayhem in a stadium made this the event to stick around for.

    There wasn't near enough water on the track. I've seen Iraqi sandstorms with less dust. All in all I enjoyed this years Rally, but I think the old venue is a better fit.
