Travis Pastrana to run full-time Nationwide Series schedule with Roush Fenway


Travis Pastrana will race the entire NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule in 2013. Roush Fenway Racing will field the No. 60 car for the action sports star.

Pastrana will be a teammate to Trevor Bayne who will drive the No. 6 car. Ricky Stenhouse has won the Nationwide title in each of the last two seasons, driving the car Bayne will occupy in 2013.

Last season Pastrana drove the No. 99 car which was a partnership between RAB Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing in eight races. His best finish was a 13th place run at Indianapolis. He also drove at Richmond for Roush Fenway in the No. 60 car.

“I am very serious about making this move, running competitively and ultimately winning races in NASCAR,” Pastrana said in a news release. “No team can claim the success in the Nationwide Series that Roush Fenway has, and I know driving an RFR Ford will provide me with the maximum opportunity to develop my skills behind the wheel of a stock car.”

Sponsorship for Pastrana’s car has not been announced. Chad Norris will serve as the crew chief of the car. Norris was the crew chief for Carl Edwards for part of the 2012 Cup Series season.
