Frontstretch is reporting that Roush Fenway Racing is finalizing a deal to put X-Games star Travis Pastrana into one of its Fords in the Nationwide Series full time in 2013. The car will feature the No. 99.
Pastrana has already sold about half of the season in sponsorship, but rumor has it that RFR would run Pastrana regardless of sponsorship.
There has been no word on what companies are interested in sponsoring him, but Boost Mobile has sponsorship him in the Nationwide Series thus far. Red Bull has also sponsored him in other forms of motorsports.
Pastrana will join Trevor Bayne at RFR. Bayne will pilot an RFR Ford in the Nationwide Series as well.
Pastrana drove for RFR in the Richmond Nationwide Series race. He finished 17th.
