CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Duke football team took a trip to Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday morning and took part in the Richard Petty Driving Experience.

The Blue Devils suited up in fire-retardant suits and jumped in NASCAR-sanctioned stock cars where drivers took the players around the 1.5-mile track reaching a top speed of 165 miles per hour. Head coach David Cutcliffe led off the event by jumping in the passenger seat of Richard Petty's #43 car for the inaugural lap. Also part of the experience were a tire change challenge and an RC car race.

Defensive end Kenny Anunike wore a microphone and sunglasses-cam for the Blue Devil Network to help document the afternoon in an exclusive feature for GoDuke.com. You can ride along with Duke's starting defensive end by clicking here.

The Blue Devils will hold their first practice of the week on Sunday in preparation for the Belk Bowl against Cincinnati on Thursday, Dec. 27, at 6:30 p.m.
