The Wildcats' premiere Belk Bowl outing was a NASCAR experience at the speedway. Players took turns hopping in the cockpit for three laps around the track at 160 mph. The most entertaining part for bystanders was watching the big guys hop in and out of the tiny cockpit. The 6'9" Calvin Taylor Jr. was a little bit smoother than big Bully McCall. https://twitter.com/UKFootball/status/1210981991283339271 https://twitter.com/belkbowl/status/1210973462417809408 Once they got inside the ride, the players' facial expressions were priceless going around every turn. https://twitter.com/UKFootball/status/1211281967519600640 https://twitter.com/_COACHCAM1/status/1210987085613740034 https://twitter.com/UKFootball/status/1211119037851111426 Kash Daniel channeled his inner-Dale Earnhardt for the occasion. #RaiseHellPraiseDale https://twitter.com/UKSportsNetwork/status/1210983871514324992 Not everyone was anxious to hop in the car. Lynn Bowden is fast on his own two feet, but he prefers avoiding high speeds in cars and on roller coasters. It wasn't all fun and games either. When Kentucky and Virginia Tech ran into each other going in and out of the track, words were exchanged. The minor altercation never escalated to blows. It was a nice reminder that the pregame activities are fun, but the only thing that really matters in Charlotte is what happens between the white lines on New Year's Eve.
