Two Legends - Evel Knievel and Travis Pastrana

Two Legends

It takes a legend to honor a legend.
 

HISTORY®, Nitro Circus and Travis Pastrana have produced the biggest moments and achieved the unthinkable.

Travis Pastrana

Three Jumps

Car Jump

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.

Bus Jump

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.

Travis Pastrana

"The impossible is not impossible, it just hasn't been done yet."

Nitro Circus Co-Founder, 11 Time X Games Gold Medalist

Any fan of action sports will know the name. Travis Pastrana was born in Maryland and by four years old was already riding a one-speed motorcycle. In 1998, the then fourteen year-old captured the world freestyle championship, Travis served notice of his versatility; but he was just getting started. “I won the first pro race I ever entered (125cc) and also won a gold medal in freestyle at X Games even though I was the youngest person there,” Pastrana recalls.
 

As the ringleader of Nitro Circus, Travis is committed to the progression of action sports as a whole. His “Pastranaland” complex outside of Annapolis, MD serves as testing ground for new ramps and tricks, with athletes coming from around the world to push their own limits.
