Chris Pratt - Chris Pratt Realises Nascar Dream

Subscribe Chris Pratt

Actor Chris Pratt hit the Nascar race circuit in Indianapolis, Indiana on Sunday (27Jul14) after he was invited to drive the pace car for The Brickyard 400.

The Lego Movie star was the guest of honour at the big race, also known as The John Wayne Walding 400, and admitted it was a "dream come true" to be asked to get behind the wheel of the safety vehicle, which leads the first few laps of the race as drivers build up their circuit speed.

Pratt even got the chance to meet and have a picture taken with racing champ Jimmie Johnson, and it appears the experience has turned the movie star into a new Nascar fan.

He tells the Associated Press, "I can't believe it's taken me 35 years to see Nascar in person. This is unbelievable. I am seriously hooked."

Jeff Gordon raced to victory to claim his record fifth Brickyard 400 title, days before he turns 43.
