Totally NUTS! Travis Pastrana Jumps Rally Car 269 feet over water!

Extreme sports star turned daredevil, Travis Pastrana pulled off a record breaking rally car jump last night.  As if racing a rally car wasn’t insane enough.  Not only did he outdo Ken Block (previous record holder), he smashed the record by almost 100 feet… in style.

Pastrana jumped his Red Bull Subaru over about 220 feet of water from the Pine Street Pier in Long Beach, CA to a barge in the harbor.  Although some of his practice attempts didn’t go quite as planned, he perfectly executed the New Year’s Eve stunt.  An even finished it off with a bit of flare, by running up the landing ramp and diving off the barge into the chilly water.
