In January, Roush Fenway Racing announced that the action sports legend would drive a full NASCAR Nationwide series schedule in 2013, piloting Roush Fenway’s historic No. 60 Ford Mustang in all 33 events on the Nationwide schedule.
“I am extremely excited about making the move into full-time NASCAR competition in 2013 and equally thrilled to have the opportunity to make that move with Jack Roush and the team at Roush Fenway Racing,” said Pastrana at the time of the announcement that he had secured a ride with one of NASCAR’s top teams.
In his first NASCAR Nationwide race of the season at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, Pastrana managed to slide across the grass to secure a top-10 finish in his Daytona NASCAR debut after he was caught up in a major multi-car accident on the last lap of Saturday’s Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway.
Pastrana was impressive in his first run at the Florida track, at times moving easily through the field. The NASCAR drivers head to Phoenix International Raceway this weekend and a one-mile track.
