We are Recreating Evel's Snake River Canyon Jump
Posted by Megan on August 5, 2016, 7:57 pm
On Saturday, September 17, 2016, stuntman Eddie Braun will be strapping into an identical rocket to the the one Evel Knievel used nearly 42 years ago. Scott Truax, the son of the builder of Evel's rocket has built a rocket from the the blueprints and spare parts from his dad. This rocket, appropriately dubbed the "Evel Spirit" is identical to Evel's with the only difference being the parachute system.
We have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to be able to stream the launch live via the internet. We are trying to raise $150,000 by August 23, 2016 to ensure that we can live stream the launch to all those who wish to see it. You can contribute as much or as little as you wish. For as little as $5 you can guarantee you will be able to live stream the launch and also receive our official theme song- Slash's version of Sir Elton John's "Rocket Man", which he gifted to the "Evel Spirit" team to use exclusively for the Kickstarter campaign. Besides the live streaming, there is cool apparel, tickets to the event and special limited edition souvenirs.
Please check out www.evelspirit.com for more information and to contribute to our campaign.

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
