Julian Edelman sets the pace

Posted Jul 14, 2014

Wide receiver Julian Edelman does a little bit of everything for the Patriots and this weekend he added NASCAR driver to his resume.


Julian Edelman has developed into quite a Renaissance man for the Patriots. Whether it's emerging as the team's go-to receiver or something far less important like his offseason turn as the host of Burger Tyme, his online You Tube video, Edelman seems capable of just about anything.

Over the weekend he added NASCAR to his list of duties, serving as the pace car driver for Sunday's Camping World EV Sales 301 Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.

"After coming here today and seeing this and the excitement and energy of the crowd and the people, it's pretty insane," Edelman told the Boston Globe. "It was a fun experience, but I'll definitely be watching a lot more now, because I'm vested."

Edelman told the Globe he took a crash course on operating the vehicle, and fortunately for Tom Brady and Patriots fans, there was no actual crashing involved. The wideout reported that he had but three rules to adhere to.

"Keep it at 47 [miles per hour], off the walls and in the middle [of the track]," he said. "When I was out there, trying out the car, they let me open it up and I was able to get up to 90-100 miles per hour. I pretty much told myself that these dudes are certifiably crazy to be going that fast on that little ring – they're studs.

"They're, for sure, athletes," added Edelman, who was joined by offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels at the event. "It's an endurance thing and they're sitting in the car for three hours, going 200 miles per hour, you've got to be focused."
