(Newser) – Thirty-seven years after Evel Knievel made his heavily promoted attempt to clear the Snake River Canyon, son Robbie hopes to succeed where his father failed. Robbie Knievel will visit Idaho tomorrow to pitch the idea to local government and business leaders, reports the Twins Falls Times-News. The younger Knievel, who is—brace yourself—filming a reality show, hopes to launch during Fourth of July weekend in 2011.
