If Travis Pastrana can win the final race of his part time NASCAR Nationwide schedule on September 1, one lucky fan could be $1 million richer. Pastrana is currently scheduled to make seven NASCAR Nationwide starts this season with his debut coming this Friday night at Richmond International Raceway.

The extreme sports star was scheduled to make his debut last season but was sidelined after breaking his ankle while competing in the X-Games. Pastrana has been undergoing rehab and recovering from that injury. He is guaranteed a starting spot this Friday night after Michael Waltrip Racing signed an alliance with RAB Racing to field cars for Pastrana for his races in addition to other Nationwide races on the schedule.

Pastrana said he is finally ready to race.
