DETROIT (WXYZ) - The campaign to have Detroit host ESPN's X Games may be paying off as our city has been named a finalist to host a summer version of the games for a three year period beginning in 2014.
The other three finalists are Austin, Texas; Chicago; and Charlotte, North Carolina.
The new host city will be announced later this summer.
Kevin Krease and Garret Kohler are the two local men working to bring the X Games to Detroit. We have highlighted their efforts through our Detroit 2020 project.
Their commitment to the cause has even earned them the title of our Detroit 2020 Persons of the Week .
