 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Brian Vickers has literally dropped in for a visit to Daytona International Speedway.
A skydiving enthusiast since 2007, Vickers became the first driver in series history Wednesday to parachute into the speedway as a promotional kickoff for the July 2 Coke Zero 400.
The 27-year-old Vickers came to a sliding, tumbling stop on the grass in the speedway's tri-oval after his first jump in the rain that started from about 5,000 feet above the track.
Vickers says it's not the first time ``someone has barreled rolled through the front stretch at Daytona.''
He has between 70 and 75 jumps and had planned to jump into the speedway last year. But he had to call off his plans after he was diagnosed with a hole in his heart and blood clots down his left leg.
