This Weekend’s Travis Pastrana’s Powerboat Invitational to Include NASCAR, IndyCar, and Supercross Pros
What could be better than taking some of the dirt and asphalt’s most intense drivers and athletes and throwing them into the water? At this time of year, absolutely nothing!
That’s exactly what we’re going to be getting when Travis Pastrana’s P1 Offshore Invitational kicks off this weekend. The idea is to throw athletes from NASCAR, IndyCar, and Supercross into an environment that’s out of their element to really mix things up. Among the familiar faces in the field will be Speed Society’s resident NASCAR competitor, Taylor Canfield.
Besides, who doesn’t love awesome boats ripping through the water at over 100+ mph?
Pastrana explained the event to ShopEatSurf, saying “I invited a competitive group of racers, entertainers, and friends to experience offshore boat racing for themselves. I got my first taste of this sport in 2019 racing my good friend Britt Lilly’s powerboat. Then last year I had the opportunity to join the Miss GEICO team and compete in the top class of the Offshore Championship Series. Now I’m hooked!” Pastrana adds, “We wanted to have a fun and crazy event to bring back competition while, at the same time, get everyone outside of their comfort zones by trading pavement and dirt for the water.”
Those who would like to tune in can find the action Sunday, April 18th at 9:00AM Eastern / 6:00AM Pacific on FS1 followed by a post-show on the Nitro Circus Facebook page.
Below, we get a little bit of a teaser of the action along with the team bio videos that shows off the competitors and what we can expect. The mix of backgrounds here and general lack of experience in the water should make for some interesting and potentially wild results when the competitors hit the waves!
