“I’m looking forward to keeping it pinned and getting massive air over that gap, said Comrie-Picard. “We learned last year that the Evo likes a little more speed than the other cars heading into the big jump. That knowledge is going to be a real advantage when we get into the stadium at X Games 15.”

During X Games 14, ACP was in the lead over rival Dave Mirra when he shorted the jump slightly in his K&N Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX and flipped end over end. Comrie-Picard and co-driver Jen Horsey were unharmed.

“The X Games is about going big and sometimes crashing big,” said ACP. “We gave the fans a show last year. This year we’re in it for the gold medal.”

ACP is among just four drivers from around the world who have been invited to the X Games every year since Rally Car racing was introduced to the contest in 2006. ACP is a strong contender for the Rally America title. There is only a four point spread between ACP, Ken Block, Tanner Foust and Andi Mancin. All are trailing defending champion Travis Pastrana.

“We couldn’t have achieved our results so far this season without the support of K&N,” said Comrie-Picard. “For us to be a top contender is an accomplishment we can all be proud of. K&N has been our choice for a decade. We work in a high-dust, high speed environment and K&N keeps contaminants out of our engine.”

The field for the 2009 X Games Rally Car Race is as follows:

Andrew Comrie-Picard
Travis Pastrana
Ken Block
Dave Mirra
Brian Deegan
Tanner Foust
Matt Johnson
Andi Mancin
Piotr Wiktorczyk
