Travis Pastrana, in a bid to honor Evel Knievel’s legacy, will recreate three of Evel’s most famous jumps in Las Vegas. Knievel attempted to jump the fountain at Caesars Palace in 1967. Just over 50 years of his attempt, Pastrana will attempt Knievel’s ill-fated jump on the 8th of July 2018. He will be riding the Indian Scout FTR750 V-twin motorcycle for the jumps.

The three Jumps

Car Jump

Evel is remembered for his numerous distance jumps over rows of crushed cars. To kick off the night, Pastrana will attempt to soar over the length of 52 stacked crushed cars.

Bus Jump

On October 1975, Evel jumped a massive 133 feet, clearing 14 buses in Kings Island, OH. On July 8th, Pastrana will push the limits even further, clearing 16 buses.

Caesars Palace Fountain Jump

Recreating Evel Knievel’s ill-fated 1967 jump, Pastrana will attempt to launch 150-ft. over Caesars Palace’s iconic fountain riding an Indian Scout FTR750, then successfully land and ride out on the other side.

Travis Pastrana



Travis Pastrana, the 11 Time X Games Gold Medalist and the Co-Founder of Nitro Circus believes that ‘The impossible is not impossible, it just hasn't been done yet’. His reputation precedes him and any fan of action sports will surely know his name. He was born in Maryland and by four years old was already riding a one-speed motorcycle. In 1998, the then fourteen year-old captured the world freestyle championship.

Evel Knievel

Robert Craig Knievel Jr. professionally known as Evel Knievel, was an American stunt performer. He attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps over the course of his career. One of his most famous (although failed) jumps was the one across the Caesars Palace’s iconic fountain. The Caesars Palace crash was Knievel's longest attempted motorcycle jump at 141 feet (43 m). After his crash and recovery, Knievel was more famous than ever.

Indian Scout FTR750

The Scout FTR750's dominant performance in American Flat Track makes this bike the perfect choice for Travis. Indian Motorcycle combined form and function to push the boundaries of speed, maximize efficiency, and redefine control.
