Pastrana out of Indy after X Games injury

"We have a long term vision with Travis which includes lots of NASCAR. We can't wait to get him healed and in our race cars," he added.

"No one is more disappointed than Travis," said Pastrana's trainer Todd Jacobs. "He feels like he let everyone down and hopes everyone knows how hard he worked for this." Jacobs added that Pastrana will have surgery upon his return to Maryland on the foot and ankle injuries, as well as on his hand which sustained ligament damage during earlier practice.

"With Pastrana, the whole reason people are interested is because he does that sort of thing," said Red Bull Racing crew chief Kenny Francis. "He gets out on the edge: you get out on the edge, you're going to fall sometimes and get hurt. It's unfortunate ... but at the same time, that's what makes him interesting," he pointed out.
