Huckfest. Is it a Bro-fest? A Bro-deo? A Bro-gasm? Well, it's a ton of huge trucks trying to jump as far as possible out in the California dunes. So yes to all three.
We cut this together from spare footage because this kid just doesn't get enough exposure: Ken Blerk driving an economy-car (Ford Fiesta) at the Oregon Trail Rally. Someday, if he tries really hard, we think he'll be famous.
For the last few years, Ken Block has been destroying the tires on Fords like it was his job. And that's pretty much because it is his job.

Alternadriver and wheel destruction fetishist Ken Block's renaming his Monster World Rally Team the Hooningan Racing Division and moving the company into a new HQ in Park City, Utah constructed of recycled shipping containers and designed to look like the set of a '90s Nickelodeon sports-themed game show.
