Jake Short just got to have one of the coolest race car experiences ever! The Lab Rats: Elite Force actor journeyed to the Michigan International Speedway for the Pure Michigan 400 over the weekend, where he was even able to get behind the wheel as the race's honorary pace car driver.
"It’s a thrill for me to go to Michigan to participate in in a NASCAR event," Jake said in a statement before the race. "We all grow up and want to be race car drivers – and I get to be experience that. There’s nothing like a NASCAR race."
Jake also had another title: he was the honorary Kids Drive NASCAR ambassador, helping celebrate NASCAR's youngest fans. He was also part of a fan Q&A with A.J. Allmendinger, driver of the No. 47 – and seemed to have a blast on race day!
