Travis Pastrana, standing by his takeoff ramp, describes how he thinks he’ll react as his car is flying through the air towards his landing ramp, in background, during a Red Bull media event on December 30, 2009. On New Year’s eve Pastrana will jump his rally car off the Pine Ave. Pier onto a floating barge anchored in Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach, Calif. HIs goal is to break the existing mark of 171 feet and establish a new world distance record. See more pictures>>
