NASCAR drivers who stayed out West during the #NASCARGoesWest swing found a variety of ways to spend their time between races.
A Star Wars and adventure fiction enthusiast as well as a comic book collector, Blaney visited the offices of D.C. Comics in Burbank, Calif., where he got a rare treat.
“I got to go in their archives and see some Superman No. 1’s, No. 2’s, things like that,” Blaney told the NASCAR Wire Service during an announcement of NASCAR’s expanded partnership with Twitter at the sanctioning body’s offices in Century City. “That was so cool to me. Those archives—there are three people that have keys to that thing.
“It was super cool. And then to let us go in and look at it first-hand. Every single comic they’ve ever had is in this archive. They had a Richard Petty comic in there—it was pretty old. That was super cool to see.”
