Travis Pastrana Pays Tribute To Evel Knievel By Recreating Stunts

Honoring the man who paved the way for dozens of daredevils, Travis Pastrana succeeded in triplicating three of Evel Knievel's iconic motorcycle jumps Sunday night. 

Donning his own Knievel-like costume, Pastrana used an Indian Scout FTR750 to jump 143 feet to clear 52 crushed cars, 192 feet over 16 Greyhound buses and concluded the ''Evel Live'' event on the History Channel by jumping 149 feet to clear the fountains at Caesars Palace. 

Pastrana, who is nearing the end of an impressive career as a stunt showman and professional motorsports competitor, admitted he was nervous leading up to the event, which began in an empty lot behind Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Paris Las Vegas and Bally's Las Vegas.
