Freestyle motocross sensation Travis Pastrana and skateboarding phenom Ryan Sheckler capped off amazing seasons as both received a pair of awards at the inaugural Arby’s Action Sports Awards presented by FUEL TV. The ceremony, celebrating outstanding performances in Action Sports for the past year is currently scheduled to air nationally on FOX, Sunday, December 10.

Truly a memorable evening, event hosts Steve-O, Preston Lacy, Dave England and Danger Ehren brought their “Jackass” high jinks to the show which included jaw-dropping appearances by Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton who were among a “who’s who” list of celebrity presenters.

FOX is scheduled to air the show nationally on December 10, at 2:30 PM ET/PT or 4:30 PM ET/PT either preceding or following local NFL coverage that afternoon (check local listings). Further, FUEL TV is supporting the event with its signature red carpet series “Blue Carpet Special” that will air prior to each FUEL TV re-telecast of the Arby’s Action Sports Awards, starting on Monday, December 11 at 10:00pm ET.

Sheckler captured the Project 8 Skateboarder of the Year Award and Jeep’s Rider of the Year Award. In all, 19 awards were handed out. Nominations for the Arby’s Action Sports Awards were announced on October 9, winners were selected through online fan voting and a panel of industry executives.

"I’m totally stoked,” said Sheckler. “I want to thank all the fans who voted for me, all my friends for their support and my mom for all she does. This is just amazing. I can’t wait to come back next year. What a night!”
