Extreme sports legend Pastrana joins ROC 2022 line-up

Baku, April 1, AZERTAC

Extreme sports legend Travis Pastrana is the fifth confirmed driver for Race of Champions on Snow and Ice, which will take place in Sweden in early 2022, according to Motorsport.com.

Pastrana, whose list of achievements includes 11 X Games gold medals and four Rally America titles, is also the co-creator of the Nitro Circus action sports franchise, Nitro World Games and the upcoming Nitro Rallycross Series.

Pastrana will return for his ninth ROC appearance at the event's first-ever edition on snow and ice, which is set to take place in early 2022 in Pite Havsbad, Sweden on the frozen Baltic Sea.

“Race of Champions is such a prestigious and unique event,” said Pastrana.

"It’s an honour to be able to compete against so many icons and legends from all disciplines of racing.

"I don’t know who my teammate on Team USA will be yet. It would be nice to team up for example with NASCAR Champion Jimmie Johnson again and try to do even better than we did at Wembley Stadium in England.

"But whoever my teammate is, we will aim to win it all."

The 37-year-old's previous ROC appearances include reaching the individual semi-finals in Paris 2005 despite sustaining a broken leg in a freestyle motocross exhibition jump.
