Every time the new year rolls around, your favorite drivers start showing up in odd places to promote the upcoming season. Today in out-of-context NASCARism, we present Brad Keselowski, pictured at right with Carl -- nah, too easy.
Jet Ski, the 2010 Nationwide Series champion, traveled to Tampa to promote the upcoming Daytona 500, accompanied by Daytona International Speedway president Joie Chitwood III and some trophy hardware.
Their first stop in Tampa was Busch Gardens, where the NASCAR duo fed lettuce and whatnot to the giraffe and snuggled up close with the rhino. From there, it was on to the evening's hockey contest, where the hometown Lightning squared off 'gainst the Washington Capitals. Keselowski and Chitwood gave the "Let's play hockey!" command, the equivalent of "Gentlemen, start your engines":
Fine job, boys. On to Daytona!
