Hot Wheels comes to life at X Games LA

11:30 PM on 07.02.2012 // Rio McCarthy

Things got crazy out in LA this past weekend during the X Games! Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy set a world record by bringing Hot Wheels to life. I'm sure we all remember the bright orange tracks of our childhood, and they were recreated in real size so that these two could perform the trick on this 66 foot tall loop.

The original record was set by Chinese driver Li Yatao in September 2011, which was on a 42 foot loop. This new one knocks the original record out of the park, and was just crazy to watch. I was squealing in front of my TV watching these two do this. I'm just glad everyone's ok! You can't tell me you won't watch this over and over in awe.
