Travis Pastrana is a motorsport icon recognized for his fearless attack on anything with wheels or engines or ramps or hazards.

But one thing is missing from his resume, and for Pastrana no event is bigger.

Pastrana said Tuesday he will make his long-awaited attempt to compete at this year’s Daytona 500 in an entry put up by 23XI Racing and sponsored by Black Rifle Coffee. The #67 Toyota will become a third entry for the NASCAR team owned by Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin, giving action star Pastrana the chance to fulfill his career dream.
