On July 8th in front of Caesars Palace, steps from Las Vegas Boulevard and in front of millions of TV viewers, Pastrana will push the boundaries on what is possible with man and machine, jumping an Indian® Scout® FTR750 V-twin motorcycle all while creating Las Vegas’ next iconic moment.

The Recreation of Three Historic Jumps
Evel is remembered for his numerous distance jumps over rows of crushed cars. To kick off the night, Pastrana will attempt to soar over the length of 52 stacked crushed cars.
On October 1975, Evel jumped a massive 133 feet, clearing 14 buses in Kings Island, OH. On July 8th, Pastrana will push the limits even further, clearing 16 buses.
Caesars Palace Fountain Jump
Recreating Evel Knievel’s ill-fated 1967 jump, Pastrana will attempt to launch 150-ft. over Caesars Palace’s iconic fountain riding an Indian Scout FTR750, then successfully land and ride out on the other side.
