BMX rider Dave Mirra, one of the most successful X Games athletes ever, has made a successful rally racing debut at The Rally Of The Tall Pines, the final round of the 2007 Canadian Rally Championship, finishing 22nd Overall. Mirra attacked the treacherously icy Canadian roads behind the wheel of a Monster Energy Subaru Impreza rally car prepared by top North American team Vermont SportsCar.
Sportslifestyle brand PUMA® is entering the rally circuit with the official sponsorship of Global Rallycross Championship and the Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team. The six-round 2012 Global Rallycross Championships kicks off May 26th in Charlotte, and will hold races in speedways across the US this summer. This made-in-the USA variation on the established European sport of rallycross pits small production-based cars against each other for door-to-door racing featuring dirt, asphalt, and a 70′ gap jump. The Global Rallycross Championship combines the best aspects of circuit racing, off-road racing and rally competition to deliver intense action in a variety of fan-friendly environments. As a sponsor, PUMA becomes the official supplier of team and racewear and the exclusive licensing partner to the team for footwear and apparel.

When I entered the Home Depot Center (HDC) I did not believe what I saw. I felt like I had shrunk to the size of Minimi or something else that is really small. The Big Air set up was unbelievably huge. I had seen photos and videos of it but that doesn't do it justice. The roll-in was massive and lead to two 70 feet gaps (21 meters) with a 50 feet (15 meters) gap in the middle.
