Travis Pastrana Sister: Parents & Family Background

Many people are curious about Travis Pastrana’s sister. But the hardcore fans of the daredevil might already know that he does not have a sister.

In fact, Travis Pastrana was an only child of his parents. Despite his occupied family line history, for his parents, it seems Travis is the only child they ever needed. 

Father Is A Racing Enthusiast

Travis Pastrana was born into a family of racing enthusiasts to parents Robert and Debby Pastrana.

Robert Pastrana, his father, was a former motorcycle rider, and his mother, Debby Pastrana, was a championship-winning gymnast.

Further, his father is of Puerto Rican descent and built his career in the military. The Vietnam vet raced quite a bit during the early ‘70s when he got out of the Marines.

Although he wasn’t strictly a moto guy, Robert raced and won a six-hour-long hare scramble on an XR250.

Travis ran his own TV sports show by the name Nitro Circus in 2009. In one of the episodes of the show, Robert shattered his pelvis after jumping out of a moving speedboat.

In the 2008 ESPN documentary, 199 Lives: The Travis Pastrana Story, Robert describes how proud he is of his son and how he enjoys every stunt of Travis.

Debby Pastrana on the other hand had many sleepless nights given the high risk of her son’s stunts. She respected his decisions and stood strong by his side.

Despite her fear of the worst, Debby watched many of Travis’s races flinching throughout his nerve-racking freestyle tricks and backflips. She understands her son’s passion for bikes and the adrenaline rush.

Surprisingly, Debby was also seen doing a backflip with a stuntman in an episode of Nitro Circus with Travis sarcastically commenting, “Mom, I thought you were smarter than this.”
