“March 13 will be one of the first races of the season for Travis Pastrana and the fans are very excited to see him,” said Anita Helmin, director of marketing, Clear Channel Entertainment – Motor Sports. “Travis is definitely a fan favorite and they have been anxiously waiting for him to get back on the track.”

“I am truly excited to be racing in St. Louis,” said Pastrana. “I have never lost a race in St. Louis, and I plan on having equal success this year. I have been training for the past few months and feel that I am ready to put on a great show for the fans of St. Louis.”

The winner of seven 125cc supercross races since his professional career began in 2000, Pastrana has made it to the podium three times in the 250cc class.
