According to Knievel, he got the name Evel as a child. Jailed for taking hubcaps, he was required to prison, where the cops were holding a guy called Knofel, whom they called "Dreadful Knofel." They determined to call Robert "Wickedness Knievel." The name stuck, as well as some years later on, Mr. Knievel legitimately took the name Evel, transforming the "i" to "e" since, he stated, he believed it looked far better.
On September 16, 2016, stuntman Eddie Braun did what Evel did not: he effectively leapt the Canyon in a rocket motorbike developed by the child of the male that constructed the initial rocket motorbike. It was called "Evel Spirit" in Knievel's honor.
