HISTORY announces the return of the unprecedented live television event “Evel Live 2” premiering Sunday, July 7 at 8PM ET. As part of the network’s third annual Car Week, the live broadcast produced in partnership with Nitro Circus will follow athletes, including freestyle motocross athlete Axell Hodges, as they set out to break world records with jaw-dropping motorcycle stunts. Professional motorsports icon, Travis Pastrana, will return to co-host the special.
In “Evel Live 2,” viewers will watch as Hodges attempts to soar over more than 24 beverage trucks to break Evel Knievel’s 1971 attempt and Evel’s son Robbie’s 2003 record. The television event will culminate with a stunt so daring few would even think of trying. Hodges will put his life on the line by attempting to jump farther than anyone ever has on a motorcycle, a distance that was set in 2011 at 379’9” feet.
