Going Big: Smagical Goes Huge During World Record Attempt

World record attempts and UTVs seem to be popping up yearly. Nitro Circus along with Travis Pastrana set up a massive world record attempt at the White Knuckle Event in Huntsville, Tennessee for Phil “Smagical” Smage.

Nitro Circus is known for their entertaining shows that showcase action sports athletes and tricks. This show though would end in a completely different way. The massive jump was supposed to take Smagical over 245 feet, but due to everyone’s surprise, it was overshot.

The Crew had done multiple test jumps on this setup, which had all gone to plan. Unfortunately, when the time came for the official record attempt, Smagical went further than anyone could have imagined.

Smagical sustained multiple broken ribs, broken wrist, collarbone and fracture vertebrae from C3-C7. That evening Phil underwent spinal surgery to fuse his C3 to C7 vertebrae. His surgeons decided that fusion is the best course of action for his injuries and will give the best possible outcome.

We wish Smacial the best and a safe and speedy recovery. To send your wishes and to help Phil “Smagical” Smage check out his Road 2 Recovery page.
