START LOW, AIM HIGH: The AP's Hank Kurz Jr. noted while Pastrana is "the winner of 11 X Games gold medals, he has no illusions of instant success in NASCAR." Pastrana's schedule "includes seven races," and his next scheduled race is the May 11 VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 at Darlington Raceway. Driver Jimmie Johnson said, "He's an amazing guy with a huge fan base, and it's going to be good for NASCAR" (AP, 4/26). SPORTING NEWS' Bob Pockrass wrote, "With six NASCAR regional races under his belt, Pastrana has had a tough start to his stock-car career." Pastrana said, "It's just a matter of getting out there, not getting in trouble, but still trying to be aggressive." Pockrass noted with Pastrana's injury, his sponsors "didn't want to commit to 20 races" in '12 and they "opted for seven with the idea of possibly backing Pastrana for more races if he is healthy" (SPORTINGNEWS.com, 4/26).
