Rally Car Racing returns for X Games 16 as one of the most exciting events on the schedule. With increased ticket sales and television ratings, Rally Car Racing is a fan favorite.

Drivers from the Rally America National Rally Championship series will once again be invited to compete in ESPN’s Summer X Games 16 competition, the leading action sports event broadcast live on ESPN.

Rally America, Inc. will be the sport organizer for the X Games 16 Rally Car Racing event. The selection criteria for the twelve athletes receiving an invitation for Rally Car Racing at X Games 16 is as follows:

1. The three Rally Car medalists from X Games 15; Kenny Brack, Travis Pastrana, and Tanner Foust.

2. The top four overall Rally America National Championship drivers not otherwise invited as of June 8, 2010.

3. Five “At Large” entries yet to be determined. “At Large” entries may or may not be competitors currently active in the Rally America National Championship.

If a driver invited using criteria 1 or 2 declines his invitation, the invitation will become “At Large”. Criteria 2 will not automatically be extended beyond the 4th driver not otherwise invited. Although SP and 2WD National championship points leaders as of June 8, 2010 are not automatically invited unless they meet criteria 2, they will be strongly considered by the selection committee.

This summer’s X Games 16 event location and dates, and a television schedule will be announced in the near future by ESPN.
