Justin Timberlake Acknowledges NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon During Concert [Watch]

-

Pop star Justin Timberlake strutted into Charlotte, North Carolina on Wednesday, January 9 ready to put on yet another memorable concert on his current tour. But the sheer sight of former NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon almost threw him off his game for a second.

In a video shared by Gordon, Timberlake can be seen noticing him in the crowd and immediately pretending to drive a car before walking away and continue performing the song.

Gordon and his wife Ingrid Vandebosch also stuck around to meet Timberlake backstage.

Of course, Gordon was far from the only NASCAR driver at this particular show. In fact, everyone from Jimmie Johnson to Kevin Harvick to Kyle Busch were on hand with their wives to enjoy a little date time before getting back on the track come February, sharing their fun pics on social media.

“Wow, Justin Timberlake did not disappoint,” Busch’s wife Samantha said on her Instagram page alongside a pic of her and her love. “We suit and tied, brought our sexy back and cried a river all night long! What’s your fav JT song? I love his new stuff especially trolls (hello mom life) but overall fav is sexy back all the way!”
