Drivers Makes Hot Wheels Loop Race A Reality: VIDEO


Race car driver Tanner Frost and stuntman Greg Tracy took the Hot Wheels "Double Loop Dare" at the X Games in Las Vegas Los Angeles this weekend by racing through a 60-foot double vertical loop.

Speaking after the event, Tracy said, "I'm at a loss for words. That was absolutely the coolest thing I've ever done. It was a handful trying to land it and get it slowed down. I knew Tanner was right behind me and I was just hoping we weren't going to tangle before we got to the end."

Watch incredible footage of the drivers turning many-a-kids' dreams come true AFTER THE JUMP.

    The Hot Wheels are fun though.

  3. By the way, I'm pretty sure this was in LA and not Las Vegas. I mean, I can see the loop from my office window downtown...

  4. Um, you might want to update this post, that is LOS ANGELES not Las Vegas. I drove by it the other day, it was pretty cool! Always wondered what a life size Hot Wheels loop would look like, and now I know.

  7. I loved Hot Wheels as a kid, my brothers and I would beg our parents to buy more track so we could build courses that took up the entire living room.

    Very cool clip, I was wondering why traffic near downtown was such a mess (not an X-Games fan).
