Take that Ken Block. We caught up with Travis at the DC store in New York to hear a little bit about why the hell he signed up for New Year No Limits.

DC Gymkhana 2.1 | Block vs Dyrdek

04 September 2009, 10.24 | Posted in cars, videos | No comments »

Someone must really love this Gymkhana thing, cause it keeps going longer than the energy bunny. Next up is version 2.1. This one is pretty funny though, with Rob Dyrdek getting in on the action in his exact replica mini-Gymkhana whip and further proving that he gets paid purely to have fun. You can’t hate on that though. If you still need more, hit up DC for some behind the scenes love.
