“I’ve been working on this for over a year now and it’s finally coming together!,” Laughlin said in a Facebook post. “I’m always trying to do something fun and different, whether it’s racing against the Hoonigans, or maybe Street Outlaws, but this time… TRAVIS PASTRANA will pilot the Top Fuel car I drive on this coming Monday in Charlotte! Travis and I have a mutual friend, Marty Smith, Who worked on the film crew for Nitro Circus. I was able to express to Travis that he can’t have a show called “Nitro Anything” unless he has first-hand experience what nitro is all about.

“This Monday, he’s getting the chance go 300mph. I’m not sure who’s the most excited here, but this is pretty much top of the list for me! Thank you to Scott Palmer for letting me pimp out his Top Fuel equipment! This is not only good for both of us, but it’s great for drdrag racing as a whole! Hey TP, let’s roll!!!”

Pastrana is no stranger to Motorsports. He is a former NASCAR driver who began his career in Supercross. He is also an X Games legend.

He’s also competed in boat racing and RallyCars.
