In 1973, Knievel traveled 120 feet when he jumped over 50 crushed cars at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
And then there's the finale, a replication of perhaps Knievel's most infamous stunt, jumping the fountain at Caesars Palace. Knievel famously crashed after missing the landing on that jump.
Travis Pastrana completes his jump over the fountains at Caesars Palace.
He covered 143 feet over the crushed cars and 192 feet over the buses in the first two jumps bettering Knievel's records.
"It's such an honor to live a day in Evel's footsteps and literally in his boots", Pastrana told The History Channel, which televised the three-hour event live.
Pastrana idolized Knievel growing up, and paid tribute to him by wearing his trademark American-flag themed jumpsuit and using a similar motorcycle to the one he originally tried the jump with. "I'm not done yet, but this was definitely one of the coolest things, the coolest thing I've ever been able to do".
In the age of social media and millions of eyes being on live events like this, it was surely health'n'safety-ed to the max.
Ex-athletes say Ohio State doctor groped, ogled men for years
Earlier this week, Jordan's office denied knowing about any allegations against Richard Strauss , a team doctor who died in 2005. DiSabato, of Dublin in suburban Columbus, also told the AP that Jordan had direct knowledge of the Strauss allegations.
He set up the vehicle and bus jumps in the huge service area behind the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino - and did all his practice jumps on his usual dirtbike because the big Indian street-bike was completely unsuitable as a jumper.
He only had 200ft of run up to get his bike up to 70mph before he launched off the ramp, soared over the iconic fountains, and landed safely on the other side.
"I'm jumping a bike that's not made for jumping", Pastrana said after arriving in Las Vegas.
All three took place over the course of a few hours in Las Vegas, Pastrana rattling through them with nearly ruthless efficiency.
This is a stunt Knievel attempted in 1967 and is his longest, most notorious jump.
This jump wasn't the longest out of the three, but it was the most technically challenging due to the limited space to reach the recommended jump speed of 70 miles per hour.
Of the three jumps, the one over the fountains was the shortest but also the most technical, the cramped confines of Caesars' front courtyard leaving little room for error. The jump may prove even more hard for Pastrana because changes to Caesars Palace means he will have a shorter approach and smaller run-out area.
