DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR driver Greg Biffle climbed into a bulldozer, pulled a few levers and then dumped a load of dirt onto the ground.
Fireworks exploded in the background.
Biffle earned the honor of breaking ground on a $400 million renovation at Daytona International Speedway on Friday. Biffle and fellow driver Trevor Bayne teamed up to win an obstacle-course race in massive front-end loaders outside the famed track.
Biffle and Bayne maneuvered the course faster than two other teams. Fellow Sprint Cup drivers Jeff Burton and Ryan Newman finished second, followed by television announcers Darrell Waltrip and Larry McReynolds.
Biffle and Bayne hoisted trophies in a mock Victory Lane celebration and were rewarded with a brief stint in the cockpit of the bulldozer.
