Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco was hanging out at Atlanta Motor Speedway today. You know, just chilling with Jeff Burton, practicing to be on the pit crew and racing around the track in speeds of well above 55 mph.

Why was he there? Eh, who the hell knows? Why does Ochocinco do anything? Like, as Will Brinson pointed out earlier today, he’s ridden bulls, he's reportedly lost his work ethic, he's scouted incoming rookies, he's threatened to change his name (again), he's promised to wrestle alligators, he's tried out for an MLS team.

Why does he do any of it? I mean, why not take a shot at NASCAR?

After his joyride around the track (as seen in the video below), Ochocinco discussed the experience.

It's good stuff, because what Ochocinco says is true. I’ve been racing like that before in a stock car with a NASCAR driver -- and forgive me, I don’t remember his name -- at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, and it’s exhilarating. He got us up to about 160 mph, and at that speed, it’s hard to keep your head level, never mind driving and trying not to crash among 30 other cars. And you just have no idea how steep the track is until you’re taking one of those turns.

Like Ochocinco says at the end of his interview, it’s pretty cool.
