Travis Pastrana Coming To NASCAR

So it’s official: Travis Pastrana aka Mr Pro Everything is coming to NASCAR, with plans to run seven Nationwide Series races next season under the banner of his own newly formed team: Pastrana-Waltrip Racing.

Pastrana, the action sports star who has a legion of followers in an attractive demographic for NASCAR (young males), will get cars from Michael Waltrip Racing and get backing from Toyota.

Those who have followed Pastrana’s career know how huge this could be for NASCAR; the coveted X Games crowd could help revitalize a sport with an aging fan base – and one that has been searching for any boost.

For those who aren’t familiar with Pastrana, all you have to do is look at these stats to understand his popularity: Pastrana has 1.6 million “likes” on his Facebook page (more than double the number for racer Dale Earnhardt Jr.) and more than 64,000 followers on Twitter (a total that exceeds that of every Sprint Cup driver except for Juan Pablo Montoya).
