Travis Pastrana to Pull Double Duty at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Sept. 29

September 26, 2012 by  

Motorsports star and pop icon Travis Pastrana will compete in both the Smith’s 350 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and the Sylvania SilverStar zXe Global RallyCross Championship Saturday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Sept. 29 Smith’s 350 will mark Pastrana’s first race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Pastrana, headlined in the recently-released Nitro Circus: The Movie 3D, is a star of the ESPN X Games and a champion motocross rider. He will pilot the No. 98 AM/PM Toyota in the Smith’s 350 and the Red Bull/Discount Tire Dodge Dart in the GRC event. Pastrana won the July 14 GRC race at Loudon, N.H.

Although a newcomer to the Camping World Truck Series, Pastrana has competed on a limited schedule in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. He made his stock car racing debut last year in the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale, Calif.
Thirty-two entries have been received for Saturday’s Smith’s 350, including 2011 victor Ron Hornaday Jr., 2005 winner Todd Bodine and Las Vegas native Brendan Gaughan.

The Smith’s 350 is slated to start at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, with Sylvania SilverStar zXe Global RallyCross Championship action on the schedule at approximately 8:30 p.m. Spectator gates will open at 3 p.m.

Tickets for the Smith’s 350 and GRC event may be purchased at the LVMS ticket office, online at or by calling (702) 644-4444.
