Yes, but you have to admit that it was pretty grassroots.

wanna know more about how this is SO full of win?

his co-driver,Ben, only has one eye.

dead serious. ben crew'ed with me for my buddy (matt johnston, rally american 2005 gp2 national champ) back in 05 in maine. he lost an eye earlier in life to a bungee strap incident, and wears a patch, or has a glass eye. people said he'd NEVER co-drive because of depth perception issues.

i have slept in a bed with a WRC co-driver, and woke up to him spooning me. yikes.

ben rules too..super nice dude. kinda rambles a lot. haha

Was the spooning due to depth perception issues, or was it more of a 'trains planes & automobiles" moment?...

I have a new rally hero! That guy has brass balls!!!

I thought Ken was cool cause he went to WRC as well as his rally duties in the US AND running a successful shoe biz.

Yea - I'm a Ken Block fan - Travis P., too.

Brass is for Bob Costas. That dude has huge swingin' titanium cojones. "The back of the car slid off the road on the right and went off a bridge. Bill just kept on the gas and a well placed BMW trailing link caught the edge of the concrete bridge before the tire and somehow bounced us back on the road. According to the laws of physics it shouldn’t have been possible, yet we found ourselves on still on the road and still pushing hard." The co-driver too.

Bill Caswell's balls are made from Chuck Norris's fists...

No, you're kidding?!

I got to have a long talk with Ben in November, when we partially blocked a stage that caused him and his driver to fall into a lake. Good times

For about a week straight, the Ken Block video would get posted a few times a day, every day on here. I think that video has actually seen the entire internet.
