Travis Pastrana has conquered his hometown in the only way he knows how.
The professional stuntman and longtime racecar driver returned to his native Annapolis, Maryland, on Thursday with a mission: successfully jump a car over Ego Alley at City Dock. With about 150 people reportedly gathered around the restaurant Market House, Pastrana completed the feat several times while a powerboat whizzed by across the water underneath him.
Pastrana was originally set to make the jump early that morning, but a dense fog that settled in across the DMV forced him to wait until around 11 a.m. to get the all-clear. He did it multiple times in order to get the timing right with the boat speeding under him. Some spectators looking for a better view climbed the mast of a ship docked at the marina.
The 37-year-old has put together a successful career in motorsports, winning 17 total medals at the X-Games and competing as a NASCAR driver for three years. Pastrana currently competes in NASCAR’s Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series while putting exhibitions as a professional daredevil and running the media company Nitro Circus, which began as a series of DVDs in the early 200s.
