The Irwindale Speedway has served as host to all levels of auto racing over the years. As the X Games bid farewell to Los Angeles, it tabbed the Irwindale Events Center, home of the Speedway, for four events: BMX and Skateboard Big Air, Gymkhana GRID and RallyCross racing. The venue was a perfect fit for the X Games and delivered more than a few memorable moments over the four-day stint here. Among them were Morgan Wade's first gold medal in BMX Big Air. This superman backflip helped him beat Vince Byron and Zack Warden for the win.
