Travis Pastrana Flies Cars

Our Thrillbilly-Tricycle-Flip hero is back, and never fails to astound.

Travis Pastrana is both an X-Games gold medalist and star of MTV show Nitro Circus. The daredevil kicks ass at supercross, motocross, freestyle motocross, base jumping and rally racing.

This time Pastrana makes a 269 foot long jump, in his rally car, over water!

Via CarDomain Blog,

"26-year-old Travis Pastrana set the world record for a rally car jump on New Year's Eve, flying his Subaru 269 feet over water and landing on a barge in the harbor of Long Beach, California. The record blew away the old one set by Ken Block at 171 feet. Pastrana had to throw the car sideways and slam it against a wall at the end of the barge to stop the car, as he said the ramp was slick with dew."
