Travis Pastrana's excellent adventure

Updated: July 31, 2011, 11:27 PM ET

Travis Pastrana has a busy summer ahead. By August, he will have brought his Nitro Circus Live show to the U.S., filmed for a 3-D movie full of first-time stunts, competed in Moto X Best Trick and RallyCross at X Games 17 and made his NASCAR debut in the Nationwide Series. And we'll have chronicled it all here, in a weekly(ish) column by Alyssa Roenigk, senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and author of "The Big Jump: The Tao of Travis Pastrana." So much for a summer vacation. Or sleep.
