NASCAR’s Edwards, Petty Try Paddleboarding

By Pete Williams

We love how NASCAR drivers are always looking to test their limits, as if piloting a race car more than 150 miles an hour around a track for five hours isn’t enough of a challenge.

Just hours after the finish of NASCAR’s Coke Zero 400 race in Daytona Beach on Saturday night, Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne posted competitive times in a sprint triathlon in South Carolina.

Carl Edwards and Kyle Petty, meanwhile, tried their hand at stand-up paddleboarding. Our friends at YOLO board, the SUP manufacturer in Santa Rosa Beach, provided some custom boards wrapped to look like their race cars. Edwards and Petty took a spin around a lake adjacent to the Daytona International Speedway and looked pretty good for first timers.

You can see video of the one-lap race on NASCAR’s site here:
