VIDEO: Ken Block and Travis Pastrana’s Stupid Human Tricks Roadshow heads to Bonneville

Submitted by on August 6, 2009 – 7:51 pmOne Comment

kenblock1We’ve seen Ken Block and his gang of misfits perform plenty of crazy cool stunts in their Crawford-built 2009 Subaru WRX STI. Block’s stupefyingly accurate power slides never seem to get old, no matter how many times we see his 566 horsepower (at the wheels!) STI come within millimeters of disaster. It is cool, however, to see Block and his friends add a little something extra this time around.

After the jump is video of Block and Travis Pastrana (on a motorcycle) having a good old time setting some land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The STI is still present and accounted for in all its adhesion-defying glory, but the speed records are being sought on some garbage cans, a big wheel, and “a $3 Wal-Mart plastic sled.” Looks safe to us.

For some reason, some members of Block’s team decided it would be a good idea to try to jump on the hood of the STI while it was doing donuts on the salt flats, and one of them ended up getting side-swiped and bounced off Block’s rear wheel like a rag doll. That’s gotta hurt. Hit the jump for 2:38 of (salt) rock-solid entertainment, but if you’re a member of the Save The Salt coalition, be forewarned, there’s some gratuitous car-on-salt violence. Hat tip to Bart K.

    Ken is the man! I hope he joins Travis for Nitro Circus next season – he’s a way cool guy that pulls some gnarly stunts. Anyone else catch his ESPN featurette? It really gave some great insight into one of the most interesting characters on the scene, definitely worth checking out.

    Also I was stoked that they featured “Sons of Cain” by Ted Leo + Pharmacists – I’ve loved that band since their first album and thought the song makes the perfect Ken Block soundtrack. You can check out the whole video at http://displacedbrett.wordpress.com/2009/07/31/being-ken-block/
