In Long Beach, Calif., New Year's revelers don’t have a ball that drops. But this year they did have action sports icon Travis Pastrana flying his rally car across Rainbow Harbor. Pastrana was the center attraction at this year’s Red Bull New Year No Limits event. He celebrated the arrival of 2010 by successfully shattering the old car-jumping record of 171 feet after launching his tiny Red Bull sedan off the Pine Street Pier going 90 mph. Pastrana officially flew his car 269 feet over the water before landing hard on a floating barge and skidding into a barricade that prevented him from going into the drink. The X-Games legend (9 gold medals) made his name in motocross, but Pastrana’s 450 HP Subaru WRX STI rally car has become his vehicle of choice. He’s also become one of the most renowned daredevils. When he was 18 years old he jumped his motorcycle into the Grand Canyon. A few years later he jumped out of a plane without a parachute. After spending months of trial and error in the desert training for this stunt, Pastrana thrilled the crowd by sticking the landing perfectly.

Man that is wild. This younger generation certainly goes to the extreme. Even where motocross competition(X Games) has come to is pretty awesome.

Greg,
Yeah, pretty crazy stunt TP did. Just watched that jump on youtube a moment ago. I did not expect him to slam into the barricade to stop. He had too many concussions and am suprised that he risked that stunt. I miss watching him at the MX/SX races. Oh, by the way TP was 22 yrs old when he 1st jumped into the Grand Canyon (with a parachute) on a sacrificial dirt bike. He did this several times on the same day (on different bikes of course)!

johnny greaves did further in his corr pro 2 truck. Did i mention its a toyota? win!

Cool video. Really smooth landing.

Another jumping stunt I'm impressed was done by a monster truck 10 yrs ago jumping over 200 ft landing without any landing ramp. Check out this vid.

well judging by his reaction... Id say that landing surprised him too.

he comments how slippery the ramp was several times at the end.
