The highly-anticipated NASCAR debut for motorcycle and off road star Travis Pastrana will reportedly come this July.
Pastrana will try his hand at big-time stock car racing when the NASCAR Nationwide Series visits Lucas Oil Raceway (formerly O'Reilly Raceway Park) in Indianapolis the last weekend of July.
The X-Games icon and action sports hero signed a deal with team owner Michael Waltrip last fall and will start approximately seven Nationwide Series events in 2011 as part of his foray into the sport. Pastrana also plans to make a limited number of NASCAR K&N Pro Series late model stock car starts and has tested one of the series cars in recent weeks.
Pastrana's Nationwide debut will come at the .625-mile Lucas Oil Raceway short track which will hold its annual NASCAR NWS and Camping World Truck Series on the days prior to the weekend's Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
