    Default Daredevil to leap into 2010 at Long Beach Harbor

    Some of you brave party people here might be interested in this.

    LONG BEACH - From watching a daredevil jump to music and dancing by the sea, an estimated 50,000 people are expected to ring in the new year in downtown Long Beach.
    Beginning at 9 p.m. Thursday, 26-year- old stunt driver Travis Pastrana, star of the MTV show "Nitro Circus," will star in "Red Bull: New Year. No Limits." He will attempt to jump his car off the Pine Avenue Pier onto a barge floating in the Long Beach Harbor and break the 171-foot world record for longest jump in a car.
    Perfect viewing will be available from Shoreline Village, Parkers' Lighthouse, the Lighthouse Park and any of the Pine Avenue Pier restaurants, such as Gladstone's, Famous Dave's, Tokyo Wako or P.F. Chang's.
    The jump, timed for the East Coast, will be carried on ESPN.

    It said world record in a car....

    Comparing a Subaru with 5" of travel to a kor truck with 25" and 800hp is a big difference. That subaru will never come close to matching the truck jump.

    I believe the category is 4 wheel vehicle, so car or truck doesn't matter. Travis' jump does seem a lot more risky.
    Here is Johnny's record jump.


    Someone know how to embed? I don't.

    TP needed Glenngi and Dean-O as onsite engineers. Glenngi would have showed him the way...



    Monster beat Red Bull to the trick...

    Glenn has a loose nut for attempting that in hos old race Rhino, just sayin'.

    Monster seems to have the record, but I think the TV audience is going to remember Travis' deal. From what i've seen, JG's jump hasn't hit the mainstream press yet, so we'll see.

    I wonder how many practice jumps TP will get. Greaves had 4-5 before he hit 301.

    See if the show can be as good as last year, Twitch's step up last year was incredible.
