Travis Pastrana is the co-creator of Nitro Circus and Nitro RX and races full-time in the series. He is an action sports icon with a racing style that started as spectacular and high risk but has developed over the years into a championship winning safe pair of hands…though still spectacular! Pastrana is on great form having won the 2021 ARA rally championship, and that speed and consistency has transferred across to his Nitro Rallycross performance too.
Travis is a 6-time US Rally Champion (2006-2009, 2017, 2021), 2-time Mount Washington Hill Climb winner (2017, 2021), 17-time X Games medalist (11 gold, 4 silver, 2 bronze) and was the youngest Rally Champion in Rally American history when he won the Rally American National Championship in 2006 at age 23. Travis also competed in NASCAR, racing in the Cup series regularly from 2012-2013 and returns to the Truck series for occasional one-offs. In record-breaking fashion, he also replicated three of daredevil Evel Knievel’s most famous jumps without injury in Las Vegas in 2018.
Travis placed 5th in his 2019 Nitro RX campaign.
