T.I. Races NASCAR at 150 MPH [Video]

T.I. is feeling the need for speed. Days before the Daytona 500, the King of the South got behind the wheel of a NASCAR race car with the Richard Petty Driving Experience. After watching an instructional video and training with the pros, he put on his racing suit and helmet and hit the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“I’m about to do something that I always wanted to do, drive fast and not get a ticket,” said Tip, who hit speeds of up to 150 mph.

“It takes real nerves of steel. I respect what ya’ll do,” said the Atlanta rapper, who pondered a return visit.

Watch him put the pedal to the metal.
