Driver // Ken Block
In 2005, Block’s first year of rallying, he was aptly named “Rally America’s Rookie of the Year.” Block was signed by the Subaru Rally Team USA in 2006 and from there he went on to take two bronzes and a silver medal at the last four X Games. His rally success includes 2nd overall Rally America National Championship finishes in 2006 and 2008, and finished 3rd overall in 2007. In just over three years Block has amassed 20 podiums and 10 overall victories.
Ken Block has gained worldwide notoriety for his exploits outside rally competition, having successfully jumped his rally car 171 ft for Discovery Channel’s popular “Stunt Junkies” show in 2006. Using his car jumping expertise, Block has advised other drivers how to tackle the difficult X Games jump. Recently, Block has been the star of the widely popular Gymkhana practice online videos amassing over millions of hits!
Since then Block has expanded his personal brand to other driving disciplines and he has carried the American flag in World Rally Championship competition. That experience has aided Block in American rally where he has won seven Rally in the 100 Acre Wood events, and nearly won the 2013 Rally America National Championship.
