Driver // Travis Pastrana
Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana dominated rallying in the USA from 2006-2009 winning the series four years in a row after switching his focus away from Freestyle Motocross. After a few years’ hiatus, Pastrana has rejoined Subaru Rally Team and will compete in the 2014 Rally America Championship driving a Subaru WRX STI. Travis Pastrana candidly refers to rallying as “motocross with a rollcage!” and has driven a Subaru rally car from the very start of his rallying career.
Starting at the age of four with a one-speed 50cc dirt bike, Travis was soon hammering his way through a string of National Amateur Motocross titles culminating with the World Freestyle Championship at the age of 14, cementing his place as an icon in the world of Motocross. Although Pastrana began in the Motocross world, he has become a standout in Freestyle Motocross (FMX). Besides winning 9 X Games Gold Medals in FMX, he is also credited with inventing many of the sport’s most demanding tricks and continues every year to elevate the bar for the sport. Pastrana gained additional worldwide fame when he landed the first ever double-backflip at the 2006 Summer X Games 12.
Travis is also well known for his positive, unpretentious attitude, which has made him a media darling and earned him worldwide exposure. He is in constant demand from both the corporate and endemic media, not to mention his millions of fans. Despite drawing huge crowds wherever he goes, Travis makes sure never to forget his fans, and has been known to spend hours signing autographs and taking pictures with every last fan!
Beyond his athletic prowess, Pastrana is the creator and superstar of the Nitro Circus franchise which includes sold out World Tours, a successful MTV TV series, and a 3D feature film. Pastrana spends his time traveling the world with his wife, professional skateboarder Lyn-z Adams Hawkins, and in 2013 became a father to his first born, Addy.
