o The action sports legend is no stranger to daredevil stunts in Las Vegas. In 2011, Pastrana and fellow Nitro Circus teammate Erik Roner, successfully BASE jumped off the Signature Towers at the MGM.

· Recapping Phoenix

o Pastrana and the RFR No. 60 Ford Mustang finished 28th at Phoenix International Raceway after making contact with the wall on the second lap of the 200-lap race.

· The Car

o Chassis RK-740 makes its debut this weekend at LVMS.

· Texas Media Day:

o RRF was represented by Pastrana and teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on Monday at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) for their annual media day in advance of the April 12 and 13 NASCAR events at TMS.

o TMS also had basketball trick-shot experts Dude Perfect on hand for the media day. Pastrana and Stenhouse, Jr. participated in several trick-shot attempts that will air on the Dude Perfect YouTube Channel as the TMS races draw closer. Stay tuned to http://www.youtube.com/user/corycotton for the videos.


Pastrana On:

· Racing at Las Vegas last season in two different series’:

“Las Vegas was a lot of fun last year. I learned there is a big difference in traction between a corner that is in the shade and one that is in the sun. Practice was at night and I could hold it almost wide open, but a spin on Lap 2 had us playing catch up all day. The Vegas course was one of my favorite from last year and I look forward to racing it in a car.”

· Racing on 1.5-mile tracks:

“Coming from a dirt background, I really like tracks that are more worn out because you can slip and slide around. Las Vegas should be one of my better 1.5-mile tracks, and I'm really happy to do that one first.”
