Travis Pastrana was rudely sent out of the X Games last summer when Andy Scott shunted him from behind during a qualifying round for the RallyCross event. Until that moment, the world had been looking forward to a meeting between Travis and eight-time (and soon to be nine-time) World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb, whose Citroen WRC team had specially shipped a car from France.
Now in a new episode of the YouTube series, ‘On Pace With Pastrana,’ we get to see the X Games as Travis experienced it. In part one below, Travis meets his idol, Loeb, and the two go head-to-head in go-karts at K1 Speed Torrance. Afterward, Travis and wife Lyn-Z take in the Moto X Step-Up and Best Trick competitions. Check it out…
Alison Hansen led the majority of the race until she went to the inside of the last turn on lap 8. It forced her into the barricades costing her 3 spots. On Lap 2 Alex Nguyen took the wide line coming out of the tunnel resulting in him being cut off costing him 5 spots. On lap 6 Nickolas Lizarraga spun out in turn loosing the 2 spots he’d picked up through the race.

What a great turnout for the Junior League here in PHX. We had 13 participants with a few first time league participants as well. Cale Kazmierczak took the pole after qualifying with Alison Hansen in 2nd and Alexander Lynch in 3rd position. It didn’t take long for the craziness to begin. We had a Texas start along with one driver spinning out another basically taking all 3 individuals right out of the running for the podium. This made it a 3 person race. Cale and Alison were out to big leads and held there positions right through the finish line to end up in 1st and 2nd position. Kylan Faubion, younger brother of our Adult GP winner Alec finished up.
