Extreme athlete Travis Pastrana is making the transition from tricks to the track, starting in Friday night's Nationwide Series race (ESPN2, 7 p.m. ET).

But does the X Games hero have what it takes to be a NASCAR champion? Pastrana and friend/fellow extreme athlete Andy Bell find out, with a little help from a mullet-headed Jimmie Johnson.

Patrick Dorsey is a Los Angeles-based writer and editor for ESPN.com. He has worked for the Web and newspapers. He also played in one Division-III golf tournament (he shot 105).
