PRESS RELEASE – Vancouver, September 1, 2015 – SAXX Underwear Co. is teaming up with Gymkhana superstar and brand ambassador Ken Block to offer one ultimate fan an all-expenses-paid trip to the November 4th Red Bull Global Rallycross race in Las Vegas to watch Block compete in the season finale where he will have everything on the line.
"This is the premier rallycross race of the year," SAXX CEO Tim Bartels said. "And for one lucky fan, we're going to do everything we can to make it the best day of the year."
SAXX will treat the winner and a friend to a VIP experience throughout the weekend where you'll get to meet Ken Block and go for a spin on the track with him in his 600 horsepower all-wheel drive Ford Fiesta ST RX43.
Block's season has been incredible so far with three race wins, five podium finishes and the overall points lead. His latest 1st place finish in Detroit makes him the winningest driver in GRC history, now with a total of six race wins. But he'll have extra motivation in Vegas after missing last year's Red Bull Global Rallycross title by just five points last year. He'll be competing to win the first driver championship of his career. The contest winner will be there to watch it all go down.

About Ken Block:
Ken Block's rally career began in 2005. His skill and car control became quickly apparent and Block aptly nabbed Rookie of the Year that season in the Rally America Championship. Since then, Block has continued to race in the series, racking up numerous overall wins as well as plenty of podium appearances. He's also accumulated five X Games medals since the start of his career, including most recently taking silver at Global X Games Munich RallyCross in 2013.
In addition to his performance in the car, Block has been a driving force in shedding light on the sport of rally within the United States. His keen branding and marketing acumen, combined with his talents and skills behind the wheel, has also allowed Block to achieve global fame as a rally driver through his wildly successful viral Gymkhana series of videos. With all seven of his Gymkhana videos (plus all associated edits) clocking in at over 300 million views on the franchise in total, they have helped put Block in front of eyeballs around the world. The franchise has also racked up several awards, including making the top 10 viral video charts by Ad Age, as well as the One Show Interactive Gold Pencil Award in the category of Online Films & Video/Long Form – Single, for excellence in an advertising campaign.
In January 2010, Block formed the Monster World Rally Team and signed with Ford to pursue his dreams of racing in the World Rally Championship and in doing so, became one of only four Americans to ever score points in the WRC (more Americans have actually landed on the moon than scored points in the WRC). Additionally, his signing with Ford included campaigning domestically in racing (Global RallyCross Championship, X Games and Rally America), as well as continuing with his Gymkhana driving. In 2012, Block re-named his team Hoonigan Racing Division, with the goal to further push the boundaries of motorsports marketing.
For 2015, Block will compete in the Global RallyCross Championship, X Games, New Zealand Rally, Rally America, and WRC, and a handful of global Gymkhana demos.
