That's great 4 Pastrana IMO, he going to get great race equipment... That's good 4 helping him learn... I bet Stenhouse will help him since Pastrana had no Teamates at MWR in the Nationwide

Maybe he won't spin every 5 laps.

He was in good equipment. Brett Moffitt got a top 10 in his Nationwide debut driving their car! Kenny got 3 top 10's and almost won at Chicago, Ryan Truex ran well at it & Victor Gonzales, Jr. did decent in it. All Pastrana ever does is wreck. All Roush cares about now is money that he brings to the team. They'd be better off with Bayne but because he doesn't have the money, he doesn't get to race.

The equipment means absolutely nothing when the only thing he can do is wreck.

Crashing is expected. He is learning. its not like Danica is now with 3 years (on and off I know) experience. She tends to be involved every week in something. Travis has crashed but its only been 8 races for him with 1 DNF. Give him time. This ride will be great for him.

Besides, Pastrana has talent. Once he gets the hang of stock cars, he'll do fine

Pastrana is actually very good. He's impressed me massively this season, and it honestly seems like some of you guys hold a grudge against him just because he's a media favourite :\

You're doing it without realising now, holding a grudge against Pastrana. Yes, given he spun out many times that race, but bear in mind that was one of his first nationwide races. Guess what Danica did in her first race? She wrecked, and look at her now, she's been outstanding at road courses and has had some very solid runs this year. I'm optimistic for Travis because he has potential. I mean, look how he ran at Atlanta. He ran very well and nearly got a top 10, and that's a similar track to Charlotte, so he's already improving! In short, don't hold a grudge from one race against him. Just because he race bad in one race doesn't mean he's gonna run bad in them all. Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch still have bad runs to this day. Give Travis a break. It's a learning step for Travis, and this is an awesome opportunity for him.
