The Team Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare, a life-sized version of a Hot Wheels orange track set, defied gravity with a first-of-its-kind two-driver challenge. Green Driver Greg Tracy, one of Hollywood's top stuntmen, took first place victory as he edged three-time X Games gold medalist and Hot Wheels Yellow Team Driver Tanner Foust as the two simultaneously raced through the giant up-side-down loop.

"Boys of all ages around the world imagine playing with Hot Wheels on a life-size scale - and our vision with Team Hot Wheels was to transform this fantasy into reality," said Simon Waldron, vice president marketing, wheels, Mattel. "The Double Loop Dare was truly a can't-miss spectacle that altered the Los Angeles skyline. Anyone downtown couldn't miss this massive six-story-tall bright orange structure - it was unmistakably Hot Wheels."
The Team Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare was modeled after the new Double Dare Snare track set. The larger than life Double Loop Dare incorporated an enormous side-by-side loop, exerting a force of 7 Gs which Team Hot Wheels drivers took on at a speed of 52mph.
"I've been a fan of Hot Wheels since I was a little kid, racing cars around my parents' living room," said Tracy, a six-time Pikes Peak Champion and a Hollywood stuntman since 1991. "So to be able to be a part of something like this - with Hot Wheels bringing one of its toys to life - is remarkable."
