Travis Pastrana kicked off his 2013 Nationwide Series campaign with a career-high 10th-place finish in his NASCAR debut at Daytona.
Pastrana qualified the No. 60 Ford Mustang in fourth for his NNS debut at the 2.5-mile speedway. At the start of the race, he dropped to the back of the field and remained there in an attempt to avoid the big wrecks that restrictor-plate racing is known for. He began to work his way to the front of the field and by a caution on Lap 100, was up to eighth. He stayed in the top-15 for the remainder of the race, sustaining some damage in an accident on the final lap, but still managing to finish 10th.-Roush Fenway Racing
