NFL meets NASCAR

July 31, 2008 5:51:30 PM PDT
Eagles kicker David Akers is a big fan of NASCAR racing. He enjoys online racing, and one of his frequent cyber challengers is NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Martin Truex, Jr.

Today, the two met at the Eagles training camp at Lehigh University.

Akers had a jersey and helmet to give Truex. The driver returned the favor with a custom painted racing helmet featuring Truex's sponsor, Bass Pro Shops.

Truex is a native of Mayetta, New Jersey in Ocean County, and drives for Dale Earnhardt Incorporated. He has one Sprint Cup win, coming last year at Dover.
