'09 Graduate Participates in X Games
July 30th, 2011
Class of 2009 graduate Joseph Burke has been invited to participate in the 2011 Summer X Games in Los Angeles, California. The annual sporting event was founded in 1995 by ESPN to focus on extreme action sports.
Joseph grew up around rally car racing as it was his father’s passion as well. As soon as he passed his driving test at 16, he began racing. Shortly after his official entry into the sport, Joseph garnered nationwide attention as he won 2010 Rookie of the Year and was invited to participate in the X Games.
He will be competing in the rally car racing event on Saturday, July 30 (should air on ESPN at 4 p.m.) as well as the rally cross event on Sunday, July 31 (should air on ESPN at 5 p.m.).
Joseph is currently attending Auburn University and studying Mechanical Engineering. He intends to graduate in 2013.
