Travis throws the 2013 Dodge Dart into a spin at the end of a ride along. I bet the rider enjoyed it, he only did it once during the day.
The very famous 199 decal of Travis Pastrana on the Dodge Dart. Those 3 numbers will never be the same. There are just too many medals to argue it.
Downshift, downshift, tap the brakes, grab the e-brake, flick the wheel= 2013 Dodge Dart GRC car in a AWD slide between the 2 blue cones.

I kind of did this for fun. Travis smiling at himself and his other self saying, "What the hell are you smiling at?" :)
