Default BMX Legend Dave Mirra Joins Subaru Rally Team USA

Quote:


BMX Legend Dave Mirra is X-gaming over to join Subaru Rally Team USA in a 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI after snagging his first rally win in New Hampshire at the 2009 Team O'Neil Rally.

No, it's not April 1st. We're totally serious. Here's the full press release from Subaru Rally Team USA:

(Jan 27, 2009) After having competed in only a handful of rally
events, BMX legend Dave Mirra has won his first rally race, the 2009
Team O'Neil Rally, at the wheel of his 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
rally car. Mirra dominated the New Hampshire-based snow rally by
setting fastest time on all but one of the event's eight stages and
finishing with a lead of fifty seconds. The wins comes just over one
year after Mirra began his burgeoning rally career that has since seen
him be named the 2008 Rally America Rookie of the Year as well as earn
a Bronze medal at last summer's X Games 14 Rally Car Racing event.

"I'm really excited to get my first win, the roads were a lot of fun
here," explained Mirra. "Running in these snowy conditions was
perfect preparation for the Sno*Drift Rally [which serves as the first
round of the Rally America Championship] next week, so I will have a
lot more confidence from the start."

Mirra's rally program will expand in 2009 with increased support from
Subaru of America, Inc. and Monster Energy that will see him join
Subaru Rally Team USA drivers Ken Block and Travis Pastrana at all
nine rounds of the 2009 Rally America National Championship as well as
X Games 15. Mirra will compete in the new Super Production class and
will debut a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI early in the race season.

mirra was in the xgames this year/last year in the rally racing. i believe he crashed all three times haha but might have won one of his races. hes a dedicated man and if he puts half as much time into rally as BMX he'll blow up real fast (in a good way) and pastrana is just a nut case. can't wait for his new season of nitro circus to start. backflip in a moster truck anyone???? or flipping a big wheel over a 60 foot super ramp? haha

Dude has enough money to do whatever he wants really. Mirra caught a lot of flak in the BMX scene for being a hucker/trick monkey/sell out/asshole but more power to him. If i had had the natural ability and balls that he did on a bike i would have laughed straight to the bank at all the haters.
