Introduction
   Travis has competed in many different

    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.
