TRAVIS BROKE EVEL KNIEVELS RECORD LAST NIGHT
Travis Pastrana, a multi-time X Games winner, NASCAR driver and co-founder of the Nitro Circus, successfully accomplished an incredible stunt on Sunday when he jumped 140 feet over the fountains of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Pastrana used a 340-pound customized Indian Scout FDR750 to make the jump, and his final distance clocked in at 149 feet.
Pastrana idolized Knievel growing up, and paid tribute to him by wearing his trademark American-flag themed jumpsuit and using a similar motorcycle to the one he originally tried the jump with. He also named the day's event after Knievel, calling it Evel Live.
