At Summer X Games in Los Angeles this week, spectators are invited to retreat from the heat of the Southern California sun and visit Texas Pete® at their booth, located in X Fest Village between the Staples Center and Nokia Live.
Texas Pete®, returning to Summer X for the third consecutive summer, will once again be providing fans with 1.9 ounce samples of their award-winning Texas Pete® Original Hot Sauce.
Fans taking advantage of the chance to get their hands on Texas Pete® Hot Sauce won’t miss a single minute of the X Games action as Texas Pete will be providing a live feed on flat panel monitors in addition to being available on ESPN.com and Facebook at Facebook.com/TexasPete.
The Texas Pete® tent will also be the place to be to see all the stars that the “City of Angels” has to offer, as multiple X Games gold medalists Pierre-Luc Gagnon and Ryan Nyquist will be on hand to sign autographs. In addition to Gagnon and Nyquist, Ken Block -- championship rally car racer and founder of DC Shoe Company -- will appear at the Texas Pete tent as will other X Games athletes, courtesy of Rockstar Energy Drinks.
Spectators also will be able to pick up “expression signs” -- upon which they can write a message for their favorites action sports athletes, free of charge courtesy of Texas Pete.
The Texas Pete® tent at X Fest is free and open to all X Games spectators from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Thursday, June 28 through Sunday, July 1.
