Travis Pastrana has been the only person to land a double back flip on a motorcycle, enjoys jumping out of planes without a parachute, has done a back flip in a monster truck, won nine X Games gold medals and three Rally America championships, has a show on MTV where he and his crazy friends do incredibly dangerous (and exciting) things called Nitro Circus, and has pretty much beaten everyone around him in every sport he's ever tried - and he’s only 25 years old.

Due to the fact that Pastrana might not live to see his 26th birthday, and the fact that it's been ten years since he first emerged as a motocross star (Yes, he won his first X games gold at the tender age of fifteen) Red Bull and MTV and God knows who else, decided to throw a lifetime achievement award party/ roast for Mr. Pastrana at the Avalon in Hollywood in order to honor the living legend, while he's know living.
