The legend of Evel Knievel will soar through the Las Vegas sky once again on July 8, when Travis Pastrana will attempt to recreate three of Knievel’s iconic motorcycle jumps for History’s “Evel Live.”

Nitro Circus and Greyhound have announced that motorsports star Travis Pastrana will attempt to jump over 16 Greyhound buses during “Evel Live,” a three-hour television event premiering Sunday, July 8 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on History. “Evel Live” will see Pastrana pay tribute to Evel Knievel as he recreates three of Knievel’s most celebrated feats, including his iconic 1975 bus jump, all live from Las Vegas.

Pastrana will aim to recreate two other famous Knievel stunts during “Evel Live,” including jumping the length of 52+ cars as well as jumping the legendary Caesars Palace fountain. If successful, Pastrana will be the first individual to complete all three jumps consecutively in one three-hour timespan.
