Maryland's own x-games star Travis Pastrana completes three of Evel Knievel's most outrageous stunts in just three hours.

X Games legend, part-time rally driver and full-time professional badass Travis Pastrana, will look to replicate three of the most unsafe motorcycle jumps attempted by Even Knievel tomorrow.

Pastrana's third jump was a recreation of Knievel's attempt to clear the fountain at Caesars Palace. In 1975, Knievel jumped 14 buses.

Appearing Sunday night in Las Vegas on the History Channel's "Evel Live", Pastrana cleared 52 crushed cars in a 143-foot jump and 16 Greyhound buses in a 192-foot jump.

The TV is showing only the "Emergency Broadcast System" signal - probably as a result of the mayhem caused by Thanos. First, we can confirm the film has two scenes after the credits.

Pastrana, who runs the stunt-based TV show Nitro Circus, said: "It's just such an honour to live a day in Evel's footsteps and, literally, his boots".

On Sunday, Pastrana wore white leathers, boots and a cape similar to Knievel's iconic costume. He went headfirst over the handlebars, crushed his pelvis and fractured several other bones in the process. "I'm not done yet, but this was definitely one of the coolest things, the coolest thing I've ever been able to do".

Those in the US will be able to watch Pastrana in action from 8 p.m. EST Sunday on the History Channel. To be here, in Las Vegas, so much of my history has been here.

The safety auto was then deployed for a big crash, which ended Marcus Ericsson's race. Pierre Gasly was 10th for Toro Rosso.

He set up the auto and bus jumps in the huge service area behind the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino - and did all his practice jumps on his usual dirtbike because the big Indian street-bike was completely unsuitable as a jumper. Where, I'm jumping basically a street bike.

This is a stunt Knievel attempted in 1967 and is his longest, most notorious jump.

Finally, the jump that many had been waiting for was at hand.

Then he rode the jump bike, with a police escort, down the Strip to Caesars Palace, pulling burnouts and wheelies along the way and even stopping to exchange high-fives with fans. Pastrana celebrated and cooled off at the same time by taking a flying leap into the Caesars' fountains.

Trump has been struggling with Kavanaugh's association with the Bush family, however, an issue the Post calls the "Bush factor". Trump plans to announce his pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy during prime time Monday night.

Of the three jumps, the one over the fountains was the shortest but also the most technical, the cramped confines of Caesars' front courtyard leaving little room for error.
