Jump into the passenger seat this season in Drivin' Dirty with professional off-road racer, Bryce Menzies. Bryce and his crew kick it into gear and rally their way through off-roading and the X-Games. Buckle your seat belts, the competition might get dirty.
And since it is about American racer Bryce Menzies a few words about his X Games Munich Rallycross experience where he drove his 550bhp Dodge Dart.
Having joined forces with Travis Pastrana’s rallycross team Pastrana Racing, Menzies now juggles a career in the Global Rallycross championship with his other love, off-road racing in the US-based TORC series and in desert races.
The last two X Games have been difficult for Menzies – he failed to make the final in Brazil and then rain cancelled the whole event in Barcelona.
Munich was not much better for Bryce. Drivers from Formula One, NASCAR, IndyCar: They all want in on the fun.
They hear Travis Pastrana at Nationwide Series races gushing about the
fun he has sliding his Dodge in the dirt. They see the increased
popularity drivers such as Tanner Foust and Ken Block are experiencing
now that the series has truly gone global. They watched former F1 and
NASCAR driver Scott Speed win the X Games in Foz do Iguaçu in April. And
now they all want a chance to be the next rookie champ.
At the LCQ when the race restarted, it was New Zealander Millen who took a dominant win ahead of ex-F1 racer Scott Speed, as Pastrana’s team-mate Bryce Menzies retired after clipping the wall trying to move past Speed into second on lap four.
That was the end in Munich for Bryce Menzies.
