Kasey Kahne takes a ride with the USAF Thunderbirds
Kasey Kahne strapped in for the ride of a lifetime on Wednesday, as the Hendrick Motorsports driver hit the sky with the USAF Thunderbirds in Daytona.
Kahne’s obviously no stranger to speed, but even he was impressed by the power of the F-16. Take a look.
He also shared some pictures on Twitter and Instagram, including a pretty amazing shot of Datyona’s Lake Lloyd.
Had a great time today flying with the @afthunderbirds. I have always wanted to see what it would feel like to be in something so fast and demanding. It's really hard to explain the way the speed and G forces mess with your body. I was absolutely impressed and thankful for the opportunity. This pic was when we got back from the flight. #daytonabackstretch #daytona500 #thunderbirds
