Yep, it’s true. Travis Pastrana has signed a deal with Michael Waltrip’s NASCAR team to drive in the Nationwide Series. It’s a bold move for this do-it-all competitor, but one that should surprise no one. Before hanging up his Subaru rally uniform though, Pastrana competed in rounds 3 and 4 of the U.S. Rallycross Championship on the Lightning course at New Jersey Motorsports Park. For those of you who are unaware, Rallycross is racing on a mixed variety of surfaces (dirt, tarmac and gravel) on an enclosed course in modified production based rally cars. Pastrana is an automotive personality that brings life to any genre of motor sport that he participates in, this is why I’m so curious to see how he will fare in NASCAR. I’m not sure as of yet if die-hard fans and drivers will embrace or repel Pastrana’s happy-go-lucky attitude. Time will be the deciding factor in that equation. Either way though, the video kicks ass, so enjoy watching Pastrana as he puts on his Subaru suit one last time.

Good luck to him! Maybe he can persuade the NASCAR officials to throw in a loop on the track.

Pastrana will be missed on the rally field but anything he touches he gets gold. So now its time to step up and move on and win a more difficult race for him. So hopefully he brings a little bit of his insanity with him. Then once he has won enough trophies there to fill his void he will move onto the next race category... as for what that is ... i honestly cant wait to find out the guy has you thinking one way then totally switches direction.. always keeps you guessing.. also extremely awesome guy in person.. So i am routing for him!
