Arguably the most popular competitor in motocross history, Travis Pastrana is coming to Richmond International Raceway to compete in the Blue Ox 100 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race on Thursday night, April 28th. Additionally, Pastrana, known for wowing crowds with his amazing freestyle motocross stunts, will participate in a question and answer session in the Party Zone fan hospitality on Friday, April 29th, prior to the BUBBA burger 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race.
