the four of us can be very competitive. When presented with a damage of going head-to-head in some of the fastest cars in the world, well, it was hard to say no. Even though some of us would have liked to say no. I'm not going to name any names. But her initials are bianna golodryga. We all went down to the charlotte motor speedway. And the first thing we had to do was to learn how to drive all over again. Check it out. Reporter: Nascar, where drivers race around the track in speeds of excess of 200 miles per hour. It's very exciting. And very dangerous. Simply put, the athletes in this sport are the most skilled drivers on the planet. Thank you. That is awesome. Naturally our producers thought it would be a terrific idea to put four of the lead drivers behind the wheel at the charlotte motor speedway. Welcome to the nascar racing experience. The nascar racing experience lets everyday folks experience what it es like to be a nascar driver. Our journey started in the classroo our number one priority, safety. Where we got verbal instructions. Inches off the ground at 150 miles per hour. And watched a few videos. We ended the class feeling confident, yet terrified, all at the same time. I'm really nervous. No time for nerves. You want to avoid this. The good news, we had professional drivers. Some of nascar's biggest names, joining us to act as coaches. The bad news?

We're trying to get the track dr dry so it's safe. We bonded with our drivers during the delay. We'd be passengers for the first run. I feel like bianna's nervous for me. As our coaches tried to teach us what to learn when it was our time to race. And gives us pointers. Have fun. Ron and I headed out first. While our co-anchors were back at pit road, making an ession. These two have no idea what's going on. As they say, ignorance is bliss. Are you ready? No. Talking about her kids. And she's talked about god. Before we knew it, we were off. An experience a little more intense than that mustang i drove as a . It is crazy. It is terrifying. It has to turn. Here comes what used to be ginger zee. All right. That's good. Our training done, we said good-bye to our drivers. Good luck. Thank you very much. That meant only one thing. Our turn. Yeah. This thing is just starting. A horror movie. Our turn.
