Travis Pastrana to Compete in St. Louis Supercross Race

Travis Pastrana to Compete in Monster Energy Supercross Race in St. Louis.

Former Eastern regional AMA Supercross Lites class champion and multi-time X-Games Gold Medal winner Travis Pastrana will race this weekend’s Monster Energy® Supercross, an FIM World Championship, at St. Louis’ Edward Jones Dome. Pastrana, who assisted in the track design process, has not competed in an AMA Supercross class race since 2006.

The winner of eight AMA Supercross Lites class races, Pastrana has never won in the premier AMA Supercross class. Over the past two months Pastrana buckled down and committed to an intense training regimen in preparation for this weekend’s race. During Pastrana’s racing career he enjoyed huge success in St. Louis in the Lites class and is the only AMA Supercross Lites class rider to win in back-to-back years.

"I have three goals heading into this weekend’s race in St. Louis: qualify for the main event, race all 20 laps without hitting the dirt and lead one lap of either the qualifier or the main event," said Pastrana.

Know for his at times wild yet entertaining style, Pastrana is arguably the most decorated two-wheel motorcycle racer in the world, having won five amateur national championships, an AMA Supercross Lites class championship, an AMA Motocross Lites class championship and nine X-Games Gold Medals to name a few of his accomplishments.

"I want to have fun this weekend and mix it up on the track," he added.

Throughout his career Pastrana has gained national attention on some of the most recognizable media outlets, including ESPN the Magazine, the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with David Letterman. Pastrana and friends have taken their antics to MTV with their hit reality show Nitro Circus where top action sports stars take part in one-upmanship actions that personify Travis Pastrana.

Tickets are available at www.SupercrossOnline.com, by phone at 314-241-1888 or 618-222-2900, the Edward Jones Dome box office, or Ticketmaster.
