  Longest Jump in a Rally Car-Travis Pastrana sets world record
 LONG BEACH, Calif., USA--On New Year's Eve, action sports icon Travis Pastrana, 26, made history, launching his Subaru Impreza STI rally car off the Pine Avenue Pier in Long Beach at 91 miles per hour, soaring 269 feet over Rainbow Harbor and successfully landing on a floating barge-setting the new world record for the Longest Jump in a Rally Car.

  "The flight was awesome," the 26-year-old daredevil said. "I couldn't have asked for anything better."

   "I was really nervous all day long, but when I got in the car I felt really calm," said Travis Pastrana. "It was definitely a lot more fun than any of my practice runs, and when I landed, man did that retaining wall come up fast! I'm just happy the car and I didn't end up in the drink. What a way to head into 2010!"

The Longest Jump in a Rally Car was the latest in Red Bull's New Years, No Limits series. The jump put Pastrana almost 100 feet over the former record, which stood at 171 feet.

  Travis Pastrana is a pioneer in his sport - he completed the first ever double back flip on a motorcycle, has jumped out of an airplane without a parachute, and now officially holds the world record for the longest jump in a rally car. After successfully completing the record jump, Travis Pastrana celebrated by performing a back flip off the landing ramp into Rainbow Harbor.
