From the very beginning of his career, Pastrana was a huge hit with fans due to his ability to perform stunts and maintain high speeds through the whoops.
Travis also began to represent Puerto Rico from an early age, as his father's Puerto Rican heritage makes him eligible to do so during international events. His first event for Team Puerto Rico came in 2008. In 2018, he participated in the Motocross of Nations event for Team Puerto Rico. Pastrana collaborated with his team members to raise money for Hurricane Maria in connection with the event.

A disappointing 2011 saw him break his ankle and foot after attempting the Rodeo 720 again.
2012 saw Pastrana challenge the legendary rally driver Sebastien Loeb to compete at the X Games.
