Ochocinco tops 150 at Atlanta track

POSTED: July 1, 2011 10:18 a.m.

HAMPTON — Chad Ochocinco has turned to NASCAR in his ongoing search for thrills away from the football field.
Ochocinco was strapped in for the ride as Jeff Burton drove his No. 31 car around Atlanta Motor Speedway on Thursday. Burton estimated he reached speeds of 150 to 160 miles per hour with Ochocinco.
A smiling Ochocino said he has interest in the sport as an owner — for a No. 85 car, of course — but not a driver because “I’d lose every damn day.”
Ochocinco, the six-time Pro Bowl receiver, took the ride about six weeks after visiting the Professional Bull Riders circuit near Atlanta to ride a 1,500-pound bull.
