LIVE BLOG: Nitro Circus from Annapolis

| July 23, 2017
Rams Head

Finally, Travis Pastrana is showing off for his hometown crowd at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. It was a tough road and after a tough fight, the City finally acquiesced and allowed the show to go on.

We will have two photographers on the field (so be sure to check back later for awesome images from Glenn Miller) and will be live-blogging the afternoon!  It is anticipated that 30,000 20,000 will be in attendance.

Rain has stopped at nitrocircus crews coming out to pull off tarps. Best guess is show will start around 4!

RAIN DELAY! According to forecasts, this will be about another 40 to 50 minutes. Spoke with show spox and there are no plans to cancel or postpone.

Travis Pastrana just spoke. Very humbled to be here and thankful that the issues could be worked out!

This is just the warm up for the VIPs. The gates for general admission will open at 2pm with the show at 3pm.

I spoke to Greg Terlizzi who is the guy running the show and he said this is the largest North American audience they have ever performed for. They anticipate in excess of 20,000. (This is a correction from my previous estimate of 30K)
