Comrie-Picard has been among the dozen invited drivers at the X Games every year since the rally discipline was introduced to the contest. Rally car racing is considered the extreme sport of automobile racing. It is an all season motorsport where drivers and their co-drivers take modified road cars to the limit as they achieve high speeds over courses that cover hundreds of miles of gravel, dirt or snow-covered roads.

Team ACP Rally uses K&N products. “I’ve used K&N since I began Rally racing more than a decade ago,” said Comrie-Picard. “We do the most extreme things we can do in a car and K&N is the perfect formula for our turbo charged motors. There is no compromise with K&N which protects our engines from road debris.”

“Rally drivers are some of the most versatile competitors in the world and I sure hope I can handle a baseball,” said Comrie-Picard. “I’ve been trying to throw wads of duct tape through an open window, without varying degrees of success.”

Comrie-Picard’s NOS Energy Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution rally car will be on display in Autograph Alley before the baseball game, and Comrie-Picard will be available to talk to fans and sign autographs.

The X Games Rally Car race runs August 2, starting at noon PST and will be broadcast live on ESPN and ABC.
