Nitro Circus founder, ringleader and world-class athlete Travis Pastrana will bring Nitro Circus Live (www.nitrocircuslive.com) – the action sports spectacle that has become a worldwide hit – to Honda Center for the first time on January 26, 2014. Nitro Circus Live showcases over 40 of the world’s best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart-stopping stunts on unique contraptions rarely attempted outside of the Nitro Circus family. Featuring the stars of Nitro Circus’ hit MTV2 show and Nitro Circus 3D film, the tour is headed up by Pastrana, a 10-time X Games gold medalist in Freestyle Motocross who has also become a fixture on the NASCAR, Supercross and rally racing circuits.
“This tour is the biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged,” says Pastrana. “This is truly an exciting, adrenaline-charged, live action sports show featuring an insane group of athletes who push each other to new extremes every single show.”
Originally a small DVD series filmed in Pastrana’s Maryland backyard, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV show with over 46 million U.S. viewers and broadcast in 60 countries worldwide. The next step was Nitro Circus Live, which has captured the imagination of fans worldwide with a string of sell-out shows and record-breaking crowds across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. “I’m so pumped we can finally bring this home for fans to enjoy,” says Pastrana.
Nitro Circus Live’s fully choreographed action sports spectacular combines big stunts and outrageous feats on an array of contraptions launched off Nitro Circus Live’s multi-million dollar set and famous 50-ft. Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp. “Fans can expect to see everything from kids’ trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes and razor scooters to shopping carts, a Barbie car and even a cooler launched with skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp,” says Pastrana. “The live show also features spectacular choreographed freestyle motocross riding, including the outrageous ‘Nitro Bomb’ with 20 riders back-flipping in the air at the same time.”
What a race! Awesome racing from start to finish, Luca Bortone was being hunted almost the whole race with Michael Boanta very close throughout, with three laps to go, Bortone started to pull away from the pack and with the checkered flag flying he ended with a four second lead over second place.
Excellent driving and a great battle for first, Chris Akers, Bang Nguyen & Kenny Takemoto stuck together for the whole race with Chris just barely able to hold them both off. Jacob Hlucky, Edward Gakic & Michael Dozier also battled for 4th with position changes throughout the whole race.
This C-Main turned out to be another great race! 1st, 2nd, 3rd place went to all new faces, great racing, consistant lap times. Jeff Wascher pulled a good lead in the very start of the race and maintained to the finish, Austin Dunphy and Brandon Quinn battled for second the entire race with a slide by Quinn which then sealed the position for Dunphy. Esperanza Rios (our only female driver) did a great job deep in the pack and moved up three spots during the 7 laps.
Micheal Gilbreath pulled and early lead and with that, it was a clear track to the finish. A second position battle between Cameron Dunphy and Robert Velasquez lasted the whole race with a slide by Velasquez in the fourth to final turn that would give second place to Dunphy. All had a great time and are for sure coming back for next season.
Last night’s Irvine Challenge GP brought a huge crowd of thirsty racers bidding for a podium spot. We witnessed a lot of great driving with the reverse supertrack layout. It seemed to be challenging at first for the new racers but for the veterans it only took a couple laps in.
What a great night of racing with Adam Akers and Louis Pilloni taking the top two spots followed by Luca Bortone in third. Looking forward to the next GP in May.
One of the cleanest Supertracks we have ever had even though there were 14 racers on the track. The quality of character and the level of competition were truly unmatched.
Very competitive all around GP3 race. Only by a small margin were most of the drivers in the B Group over the A group. So some great racing at hand. We even had a 1st time racer take 3rd in the group. We’re looking forward to next month’s GP!
Due to the high demand from junior racers, we are getting junior karts in Irvine in 3 weeks! Stay tuned for the exact date and be ready to bring in those soon to be race pros for some karting on our track.
