Robbie's next confirmed jumps will be:
Robbie will be using a Harley Davidson XR- 750 same motorcycle model his father Evel Knievel used in his failed attempt at Wembley Stadium in 1975, but he’ll be trying to jump 16 buses, 3 more that his father tried to do. The current record is 15 buses held by stuntman Bubba Blackwell.
- Robbie is planning a jump at Wembley Stadium and the Snake River Canyon
On May 25th 1975, Robbie’s legendary father took to Wembley to jump over 13 buses and crashed in front of an audience of 90,000, breaking his pelvis that almost ended his career, but Evel was back jumping just five months after the accident.
“I always wanted to do the Wembley jump that my dad attempted and failed. Daredevils are a dying breed. I’m proud to have been raised by one and to be one myself.”

“It was a little bit of difference (from late model), mostly on the power. But (crew chief) Trip (Bruce) and the guys brought a good setup there. We ran really fast all day and everybody was really happy and thrilled and they know I can drive now. They’re ready to go racing,” Burton said.
Burton said the truck test seemed to come naturally. “It wasn't a whole lot of difference in what I’d been driving. If you can drive a late model, you can almost drive anything.”
“I’m pretty excited about it,” Burton said.

Pacific Equipment is very excited to continue sponsorship into the 2013 race season.
