Live Chat with Ken Block

Ken’s rally career began in 2005.  His skill and car control were quickly apparent and he was aptly named Rookie of the Year in the Rally America Championship.  Since then, he has continued to race in the series, boasting a healthy number of podium appearances, as well as X Games medals.

In addition to his performance in the car, Ken has been a driving force in shining a spotlight on the sport of rally in the United States.  Before entering motorsports, he co-founded DC Shoes, a worldwide leader in performance skateboarding shoes and a renowned action sports brand.

His keen sense of marketing not only helped elevate DC to their current status, but it has also allowed Ken to achieve global fame as a national rally driver through his very successful viral video campaigns.  Ad Age named his Gymkhana TWP film the No. 4 Viral Video of 2009.

In 2010, Ken goes global.  He will compete in both Rally America and X Games in the United States with a Ford Fiesta, and WRC in a Ford Focus RS.

Glad that Ken Block got one. Now how about Ford making it possible for ME to get one in Western side of Canada? I'm a Ford Employee and I STILL can't get one!
