Though he now resides in Orlando, Fla., Marques hails from So Paulo, Brazil -- about 650 miles from the RallyCross course at X Games Foz do Iguau 2013. Driving in more than 520 live stunt shows per year means his handling skills should make him not just a national favorite, but one for the world to watch should he make the final on April 21.
