Bucky Lasek is a skateboarder first and foremost! While cars and racing also have been in his blood for years, it's no surprise that Lasek will be the first skateboarder to compete in RallyCross in the 2012 X Games in Los Angeles. Bucky will get his chance to race alongside Ken Block, Dave Mirra, Travis Pastrana and the rest of the field to prove that skaters can do nearly anything. ESPN.com got a chance to sit down with Bucky and pick his brain about skating, rally car racing and the X Games -- enjoy.
