He's getting ready to make his NASCAR Nationwide debut next week in Indianapolis, and on Thursday Pastrana said he also intends to take IndyCar's $5 million challenge.
Pastrana has captured 16 gold medals in the X Games and has won multiple supercross, motocross and American rally championships. On July 15, Pastrana finished 22nd in his debut in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East at Loudon, N.H.
Now he has bigger plans.
After the July 30 Nationwide race, Pastrana wants to compete in IndyCar's season-ending event at Las Vegas. IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard has offered $5 million to any driver from another series who can win the Oct. 16 race. It's a challenge Pastrana couldn't pass up.
