ColinMcraeFlyer Remembering Colin McRae at K1 Speed
In memory of Colin McRae’s passing five years ago, Rally Innovations/DirtyImpreza.com will be holding a tribute on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at K1 Speed Anaheim starting at 7:00 pm after the Glen Helen Rally X. At Glen Helen, we will be giving out vinyl Colin McRae Tribute decals to be placed on the rear quarter window. We request that these Tribute decals be placed in the same location on each vehicle to promote a sense of uniformity among the rally enthusiasts.


If you are not attending the Rally X earlier that day, you are still welcome to participate in commemorating his life and achievements at K1 Speed. We will have a collection of videos of his racing career playing throughout the night and we invite all to bring your own Colin McRae videos and share stories of how he has inspired our rally community. As part of the tribute, we will hold a candle light vigil at 8:00 pm, please be there by that time in order to take part in the vigil.


We would like to thank K1 Speed Anaheim and JayCom Event Management for making this event possible. Rally on!

    From the producer of Wedding Crashers – written and directed by and starring comic talent Dax Shepard (NBC’s “Parenthood”) HIT AND RUN is the story of Charlie Bronson (Shepard), a nice guy with a questionable past who risks everything when he busts out of the witness protection program to deliver his fiancé (Kristen Bell) to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated, when they are chased by the feds (led by Tom Arnold) … and increasingly dangerous, when Charlie’s former pals, a band of gangsters (led by Bradley Cooper), enter the fray.

    HIT & RUN IN THEATERS AUGUST 22ND!

    JulyChristmasGraphic 1024x680 2nd Annual “Lugz Kidz Christmas in July”
    For most kids, July is a time for picnics, vacations & a school break

    …FOR SOME, IT MIGHT BE THEIR LAST CHRISTMAS.

    For most children, each day blends into the next one. The biggest concern may be where to go for ice cream. For many other children, the only thing on their minds is living another day as they fight a desperate battle to simply stay alive. Sadly, the idea of celebrating Christmas in December may not happen for them.

    For kids fighting incurable cancer and other life threatening illnesses, their clock may run out on their life before reaching one of the most magical of all holidays…Christmas!

    You can make a difference in the life of a child…a real difference. While you are helping some great kid’s, you can join in the fun too with this unique action/motorsports themed two-day event! Imagine what it will feel like for you and your family to be a part of the miracle of putting a genuine smile on the face of a child who may not have had a reason to smile for quite some time. Your donation will do just that. Plus, you can join in the fun, if you choose!

    A portion of ALL proceeds raised will go to several worthy local pediatric cancer charities.
