Travis Pastrana Joins the Magoo Van Fund Supporters

Motorsports and stunts performer Travis Pastrana joined the efforts made to get former MX star Danny "Magoo" Chandler a new special needs van, by contributing with $5,000 to the cause. Pastrana is therefore the 13th to be added to the list of 20 as part of Bob "Hurricane" Hannah's Challenge contributors.

"Me and others have made great careers out of doing incredible things... no, IMPOSSIBLE things on motorcycles! However it was Magoo who showed everybody way back when what was possible if you just decided to go for it, and the fans loved him for it," explains Pastrana.

"I'm honored to help because what Danny is doing now for motorcycle safety is super important. I want to encourage others who, like Bob Hannah said, 'have the ability to give towards this,' to take up the Challenge to get Magoo his new van,"
Pastrana added.

"Having another current motorcycle star of Travis Pastrana's caliber help us, will go a long way to completing this project for Magoo," said Brad Lackey, America's First Motocross World Champion. "If there is a guy today that recognizes the trail Danny blazed for all of the current riders, that guy is Travis Pastrana."

"It's awesome that Travis is stepping up to meet the challenge," added 7-Time National Motocross and Supercross Champion Bob "Hurricane" Hannah. "Some of us hung it out every time we raced, and Pastrana has really hung it out during his career. However, Magoo was the first and its great that Travis understands this," Hannah concluded.

Danny suffered a crash in a heat race at the Paris Supercross in 1985 that broke his neck and left him paralyzed. By then, he won both races in the Motocross des Nations as well as the Trophee des Nations, becoming the first rider to win both events in the same year.
