Travis Pastrana Nails 3 Iconic Evel Knievel Tribute Jumps in One Night!

Travis Pastrana continued to show his dominance as the most electrifying daredevil in motocross by completing three of the legendary Las Vegas jumps by famed daredevil Evel Knievel.

34-year-old Pastrana planned to conquer three feats on Sunday night:

  1. Jump 143 ft to clear 52 crushed cars
  2. Jump 192 ft over 16 Greyhound buses
  3. Jump 149 ft to clear the fountains at Caesars Palace

The moto champ hit all three on his Indian Scout FTR750 motorcycle, and honestly made it look pretty easy.  We swear those jumps looked harder back in the day, and Knievel actually never made the fountain jump, but instead came up short and was severely injured.

During the event, Pastrana spoke on his admiration for the late-daredevil, who died in 2007 at the age of 69. The Knievel family was also in Vegas to witness the jumps.
