Drivers tackle life-size Hot Wheels loop
LOS ANGELES, July 1 (UPI) -- Drivers set a Guinness World Record for racing through a Hot Wheels-inspired 60-foot-tall double vertical loop at the X Games in Los Angeles, Mattel announced.
The stunt saw driver Greg Tracy, a top Hollywood stunt man, and Tanner Foust, an X Games gold medalist driver, race through the twin loops Saturday, a news release from Mattel said. Tracy edged out Foust for the win.
"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 of marketing for Hot Wheels at Mattel.
The drivers took on the six-story loops at 52 mph, exerting a force of seven Gs, Mattel said.
"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."
The stunt was performed in conjunction with the recent release of the new Team Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare track set.

Lamb of God front man arrested in Prague
PRAGUE, Czech Republic, July 1 (UPI) -- Prague police arrested the lead singer of U.S. heavy-metal band Lamb of God for an alleged altercation in 2010 that left a concertgoer dead, the band announced.
Randall "Randy" Blythe, who was arrested Thursday, could face five to 10 years in prison if convicted of charges of fourth-degree bodily harm resulting in the death of a fan, Czech media outlet Novinky reported.
However, Maria Ferrero, the band's longtime publicist, told MTV news no formal charges have been filed. She said there have also been inaccurate reports of what happened at the concert at Prague's Club Abaton in May 2010.
"Under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved. This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance. It is alleged that the third time, security was not able to reach him and that Randy pushed him back into the audience where supposedly he fell and hit his head," Ferrero said.
Lamb of God is known for playing high-energy music where fans slam dance, mosh or crowd surf, WTVR-TV, Richmond, Va., reported from the band's hometown.
"Being in a band onstage can be extremely chaotic, real anarchistic," said Richmond musician Greta Brinkman. "People get excited and throw things … and I could easily see how someone could fall and get hurt. You know, anything can happen."
