Wanna guess what the winner of the 1999 Indianapolis 500 is up to this summer?

Drivers Kenny Brack, Tanner Foust and Brian Deegan will drive rally-prepared Ford Fiestas in competition at X Games 15 in Los Angeles in late July.

The Fiestas will be fielded by Sweden's Olsbergs Motor Sport Evolution. That is the same group that is bringing rally-prepped Fiestas to Colorado's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in July.

Brack is the 1999 Indianapolis 500 winner. He will drive a three-door Fiesta in the X Games, his first time at the event. Brack retired from pro driving in 2006 to pursue a music career, but he still participates in special events.

He probably still participates in motorsports because his music career, launched with a song about AJ Foyt of all things, never really took off.

No word yet on if Jeff Ward, who has no music videos but is still hero to Nearly Old Guys everywhere, is returning to the X-Games to defend his Moto X SuperMoto title.
