Travis is In ... "For now, anyway"

That's the word out of the Team 199/Red Bull/Cernic's Racing camp on Travis Pastrana's chances of showing up and racing the Southwick National this weekend. The mercurial action-sports superstar will race a relatively stock RM-Z450 this Sunday afternoon, likely working out of his own pickup truck and trailer "because he wants to fly under the radar as much as possible."

Pastrana has always loved racing in the sand, and he won the 125 National here twice (2000, '01), but he has not finished an AMA National in quite some time. According to our source, "He's just going up there to have fun."
