Travis has competed in many different
motorsports. He has done freestyle, motocross,
supercross, rallying, Nascar, and he has even
started his own reality TV show on mtv. He is a
person that does not walk away when he gets
hurt. He has sustained many injuries and has
undergone 20 surgeries, yet he still is
committed to what he loves to do and that is to
entertain America and to be a star. He is my
favorite motorsport driver.
