We knew vampires could run extremely fast, but we had no clue Nina Dobrev liked to live life in the fast lane! The Vampire Diaries star took to her WhoSay account this weekend to let us know she was having a grand ol’ time at the Daytona 500 — aka the biggest race of the NASCAR season. Which famous racer was Nina snapping a selfie with?

“#NASCAR selfie alert. With legend @jeffgordonweb before the big race! Shout out Trent! #Daytona500,” Nina captioned the photo of her with No. 24 himself, Jeff Gordon on Sunday, February 23. The night may have belonged to Dale Earnhardt Jr., but Jeff did pull out 4th place at the end of the rainy night.

Jeff has been making left turns for a living almost as long as Nina has been alive. He joined Hendrick Motorsports in 1993 and our homegirl was born 1989. We’ll leave the driving to Jeff, but Nina can definitely handle herself around the more supernatural kind.

Nina didn’t only hang out with racing royalty at the big event, she even took a moment to take a picture with Captain America star Chris Evans, who was actually serving as Grand Marshall for the big event.

This girl has some famous pals, doesn’t she?

Are you surprised Nina went to a NASCAR race? Hit the comments and let us know!
