Travis Pastrana to Attempt 3 Evel Knievel Stunts in 3 Hours
Action sports legend and Nitro Circus ringleader Travis Pastrana is set to attempt three iconic Evel Knievel stunts this summer in Las Vegas, including the infamous Caesars Palace fountain jump that resulted in Knievel being hospitalized. For the other two stunts, Travis will attempt to break Knievel’s record of jumping over 50 cars and also Knievel’s record of jumping over 14 buses. The entire feat will be broadcast on History Channel on July 8 during the special Evel Live.
As part of his tribute to the first iconic daredevil, Travis will attempt all three stunts on motorbikes inspired by the bikes Knievel used to make the attempts. If he’s successful, this will add to his already impressive list of historic action sports achievements. More details on Evel Live as the date gets closer, but mark this one on your calendar, because regardless of the outcome, this is history in the making.
