It's Ken Block vs. A.J. Allmendinger in Ford's '43 Fiestas' Competition

This may be a little weird, but we are going to just go along with it. NASCAR ’s Richard Petty and A.J. Allmendinger are joining together with newfound rally legend Ken Block to do a promotion for Ford and their 43 Fiestas competition. Taking the saying, "Can’t we all just get along" very seriously, these three have joined forces to market the contest which will see Ford giving away 43 flat screen TVs, 43 ticket-and-hotel packages to the Ford NASCAR 400 Sprint Cup race, and one specially prepared Ford Fiesta to a lucky winner. And it gets better; if Allmendinger wins the race, Ford will be giving away 43 fiestas to all of the grand prize winners.

Richard "The King" Petty won’t be doing any of the driving because, well, it just wouldn’t be fair to the other two, but he does make a little cameo to no doubt build up interest in the competition. The race is between Allmendinger and Block, who have significantly different driving styles, to say the least. Allmendinger is the driver of the Insignia Best Buy #43 Ford Fusion Ford Fusion and has won many different championships including the Karting Federation Grand National, Barber Dodge Pro, Toyota Toyota Atlantic, and Champ Car Rookie of the Year. Ken Block is the driver of the 43 Ford Fiesta Ford Fiesta driver in the Rally America Championship and he has won five consecutive championships in Rally America’s 100 Acre Woods Rally in Missouri. Block was just recently in the headlines for unveiling his first video of his new free-wheeling joy ride, the Gymkhana III.

For me, I don’t really care about Ken Block. The only thing that amazed me here is those two wonderful cars that’s racing each other. Those are really good cars.

Ken Block has been the resident driver of Ford Focus ever since and he got his own show and yet he chooses to drive the fiesta. I wonder if he drive other car?

that was a total cliff-hanging..i can’t guess who wins in the race..

How about an AWD version, and turbocharged? Beefed up suspension, etc. Then the promotional video of Block using the thing for Gymkhana 3 would create exponential amounts of media hype.

I think that’s a very great contest. Well, I can’t choose between the two. They were both skillful.
