NASCAR youngsters enamored with Batman’s rides on film studio tour

Mar 21, 2014, 3:45 PM EST

With NASCAR setting up shop this weekend in Southern California, it was only natural that a group of their rising stars took advantage of a time-honored tourist “to-do”: Visiting the movie studios in Hollywood.

It was also natural that they particularly enjoyed an up-close and personal look with some famous film vehicles – the Batmobile and the Batpod from the recent Batman “Dark Knight” trilogy.

We figure Sprint Cup rookie Austin Dillon would make for an intimidating sight if he could take the Batpod on the high banks.

Nationwide drivers Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott, along with Camping World Truck racer Darrell Wallace Jr., also made time to check out the Batmobile.

But they did manage to take themselves away from the sweet rides and head down to “Central Perk,” the famed coffeeshop from the legendary NBC sitcom “Friends.”

And they even managed to get some face time with Ashton Kutcher on the set of “Two And A Half Men.”

All in all, not a bad way to spend some down time away from the garage.
