In the world of racing, the Daytona 500 is pretty much as big as it gets, and with the 2014 Sochi Olympics finally coming to a close this weekend, the timing was perfect for sports junkies everywhere!
Well this Sunday, a handful of celebrities made their way to the Daytona International Speedway where they got a chance to take in the action and get up close and personal with some of the top drivers in the country!
Nina Dobrev made the most of her chance to mingle with a few racers before things kicked off and snapped a few selfies with Denny Hamlin and Jeff Gordon!
Meanwhile, 50 Cent had one of the best seats in the house as he watched the pit crews change tires and fuel up their cars at blazing speeds!
But perhaps none of them got closer to the action than Chris Evans, who had the honor of kicking things off as the Grand Marshall! Because let's be honest, who better to start off one of the biggest races in the U.S. than Captain America??!
Ch-ch-check out his big moment …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
