Robbie Knievel

Mike Lamp of member station KNAU reports on daredevil Robbie Knievel's motorcycle jump over the Grand Canyon. Knievel is trying to make a new world record. Tomorrow night's event will not take place on National Park property but on the Walapi Indian Reservation. The Walapis hope the live television coverage of the event will help attract tourists to the reservation and help their economy.
