Plymouth Motor Speedway Announces Special Guest Appearance by Travis Pastrana
Eric Saunders, promoter of Plymouth Motor Speedway, just announced that Travis Pastrana will make a special guest appearance on Friday, August 12th.
Travis Pastrana’s accomplishments are already legendary: world freestyle champion at age 14, five-time U.S. amateur motocross champion, two-time Canadian amateur motocross champion, youngest rider ever to represent the United States at the Motocross des Nations in France, 125cc pro national outdoor champion, 125cc East Supercross Series champion, and most successful competitor in the history of X Games freestyle motocross. He won back-to-back championships in the Rally America Series – so he is just as amazing on four wheels. And if all of his accomplishments aren’t enough, he has taken on the world of NASCAR racing. Pastrana is personal friends with Eric and Irish Saunders.
According to a recent interview on Sirius NASCAR channel 128, Travis said he got his first taste of being on four wheels when Irish Saunders let him take a spin in a Silver Crown car at Lakeland Speedway. Travis wants to help his friend Eric Saunders the promoter of the 3/8th mile
Marshall County asphalt oval after Eric was critically injured and paralyzed on August 29, 2010 (the day before Eric turned 18) while practicing at his Lakeville home track for an upcoming Motocross race in the Steel City Pro National in Pittsburgh, PA.
On this special evening Plymouth Motor Speedway will host a complete race program of Outlaw Late Models, Sportsman, Street Stocks, and Front Wheel Drives along with a burnout contest. The Outlaw Late Models will compete in a 50-lap feature event.
Line up at the gate early, find a seat immediately because an anticipated standing room only crowd will be there to see and talk to the most amazing man on two wheels, Travis Pastrana.
