Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy spiced up ESPN's X Games LA by living out a real life version of a childhood toy. The two stunt drivers pulled off the Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare in front of a giddy audience at LA Live Saturday. By completing the 66-foot tall loop, both drivers shattered the previous loop record of 42 feet, set by Chinese driver Li Yatao in September 2011.
Upgraded Childhood of the Day: JR Hildebrand may have lost the 100th Indy 500 to Dan Wheldon after crashing into the wall with one turn to go, but over at the life-size Hot Wheels V-Drop, Top Gear's Tanner Foust nailed a world record-setting 332-foot jump in a modified Pro 2 truck.
Those two things may not be directly related, but they both happened.
