Ford Tries to Lure Summer X Games to Detroit with Driftastic Fiesta ST [video]

When the Summer X Games rolled around way back when in 1995, thanks to an initial West Coast sort of attitude, it became almost exclusively a Cali-based event. Only every few years did it take to the East Coast. But Ford wants to change all that, and they hope their Fiesta ST racecar tearing up the streets of the Motor City might do the trick. Burning some rubber atop and around some of Detroit's most recognizable landmarks- Cobo Hall, Bell Isle, Michican Central Depot- Ford's drift-happy little hatchback definitely turned some heads, and hopefully some votes, in the process. Along with the Motor City, Chicago, Austin and Charlotte are all in the running to play host to the Summer X Games for the next three years. We'll know for sure who gets the bid come summer, but for now, enjoy the Fiesta ST and all its rubber-burning glory:
