[Best Syndication News] Travis Pastrana achieved a new world record on New Years Eve when he jumped his race car off of the Pine Street Pier in Long Beach, California and landing on a barge that was positioned to catch him in the harbor. Pastrana cleared 269 feet in the air and the grand event which happened shortly after midnight was televised by ESPN. The event was sponsored by Redbull.
Pastrana raced his Subaru down the Pier and made his jump. When he landed he slid his car sideways and hit a fenced barricade to make his car come to a stop. He was not injured in the stunt and came out of the car to meet the crowd of around 20,000 spectators.
Pastrana is becoming a regular daredevil as he has jumped out of an airplane without a parachute to have someone with a parachute catch up with him for a safe landing.

Woman racing drivers have always had to battle to overcome discrimination as well as the challenges of the racing circuit to make it in the profession. Throughout the history of motorsport women have come and gone without making a lasting impression; that was until 26-year-old Danica Patrick became the first woman to ever win an Indy Car race.
When Patrick took the chequered flag at the Twin Ring Motegi in Japan in May 2008, she notched her first win in three years of competition to make motor racing history. However, because breaking her duck was such a long time in coming she had previously been subject to a great deal of criticism from fellow competitors due to the amount of media attention that she attracted. They felt it was disproportionate to her ability, a claim that has now been put to rest in emphatic fashion.

(Best Syndication) A mechanic made a mistake and it cost Jeff Gordon dearly, as NASCAR officials said he will start 42 in a field of 43 cars in Sunday’s Daytona 500. When asked about it at a news conference after winning the second twin 150-mile qualifying race Thursday, Gordon was surprised, “Are you serious? That sucks. I'm mad about that right now." He was unaware of the infraction.
The inspectors said that his number 24 Monte Carlo was almost an inch too low. When asked what the penalty should be, Gordon said he was not sure. "I mean, I think I should start the Daytona 500 on Sunday, but where I start will be the other thing".
