Boys around the world have grown up playing with Hot Wheels since 1968, but now Hot Wheels is bringing these stuntastical toys to life with real drivers and unreal track challenges. On June 30th Hot Wheels will attempt a world record breaking insane double loop dare. Two stupidly courageous drivers, Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy, will drive separate cars into a six story high loop. That’s right. Real cars. Real loops. Real tears if the stunt doesn’t work.

 

The loop is modeled after the Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare track. The guys will be reaching speeds of 52 MPH, which sounds slow, but stop acting like the expert of looping car ramps. Jerk. The loop will have the drivers experience 7 Gs - the equivalent to what fighter jets experience.

This isn’t the first Hot Wheels stunt. Hot Wheels sponsored the world record breaking  332 foot distance jump at the 100th Indianapolis 500 by driver Tanner Foust.

 

Fanboys, those who love Nascar, and anyone who’s interested in the possibility of the stunt challenge failing be sure to tune into ABC June 30th at 11:20 AM PT or www.HotWheels.com for a Web stream of the action.
