Nitro Circus crew races at Red Bull Ring

Travis Pastrana
Travis Pastrana, right, gets a high five before the racing, perhaps for his fine mustache.

What do stuntmen and daredevils do in their downtime to relax? Hit a world-famous racetrack for some auto racing, of course.

Members of Nitro Circus Live took a break from their first European tour Sunday for some laps at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.

Nitro Circus founder and ringleader Travis Pastrana could only watch because he is still recovering from shoulder surgery and doesn't want to jeopardize his goal of driving a full NASCAR Nationwide Series next year.

There was no stopping his wife, however, as Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins Pastrana enthusiastically got behind the wheel to navigate the track. The pro skateboarder has racing skills of her own, as shown by her championship in the Better Half Dash in October when she beat NASCAR wives and girlfriends in the charity race in Concord, N.C.

Before it was bought by the energy drink maker and rebuilt, the racetrack had been home to Formula One racing's Austrian Grand Prix at various times from the 1970s through 2003, when the world's most popular auto racing circuit outgrew the track.
