Boost Mobile and Pastrana are asking fans for their input to help them Name the Weekend for a chance to win a VIP trip to Los Angeles or Indianapolis to see Travis compete first hand.
Travis will be competing in the Summer X-Games in Los Angeles on July 28 and July 29.

The Grand Prize winner will receive a VIP trip to Los Angeles or Indianapolis including a personal meet and greet with Pastrana, an Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Prevail, one month of Boost Mobile’s $50 Monthly Unlimited service and an autographed Pastrana shirt.
Fans will be able to submit their Shouts through June 17. Immediately afterwards, there will be a one (1) week voting window where fans can vote on their favorite Shouts by clicking a Thumbs Up icon.
