NASCAR on NBC, Nick Offerman tell you to “get some NASCAR in your life” (VIDEO)

1 Comment

Times and tastes have changed for our country. But Americans still love their fast cars and their music.

With that in mind, NBC Sports and actor Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson on NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’) are taking you on a musical journey through NASCAR, which returns to the NBC airwaves this July 4th weekend.

In the two-minute plus clip above, Offerman delivers humorous, spoken-word platitudes about the sport and its culture over a tune that takes cues from country and Motown – exhorting its listeners to “get some NASCAR in your life.”

We think it’s pretty darn catchy, and we think you’ll feel the same way about it.

NBC’s race coverage begins July 4th with the XFINITY Series event at Daytona International Speedway, followed by the Sprint Cup Series’ Coke Zero 400 at Daytona on July 5th.

Robert Wickens continues his recovery from injuries sustained in a crash at Pocono Raceway in August.

On Friday, Wickens posted a new video of his rehab efforts on his twitter page. In the new update, Wickens is shown working on a pedal machine while connected to electrodes as part of his physical therapy.

Wickens even quipped “I’m riding a bike!” in the short video.

The IndyCar Series community continues to rally around Wickens and offer support as he continues the rehab process, and several of his fellow drivers responded and offered more messages of support.

Prior to the season-ending INDYCAR Grand Prix of Sonoma, Wickens released his first video update since the Pocono crash, thanking everyone for their concerns and kind words of encouragement.
