Travis Pastrana was in downtown Detroit on Monday to announce a partnership with Dodge and SRT Motorsports in this year's Global RallyCross Championship Series. The popular 28-year-old will be behind the wheel of a Dodge Dart rally car on this circuit, which begins May 26 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Pastrana also said he's going ahead with plans for his Nationwide debut at Richmond International Raceway on April 27.
"I drive a lot of different types of vehicles," he said. "I love to drive. Everything that you drive brings a completely different audience."
Pastrana will pilot the car in six races, which will coincide with a variety of races in other series, including NASCAR and Izod IndyCar as well as the X Games.
