red bull driver, scott speed, rides fake bull

If you’re a Scott Speed fan then you’re in luck. I have a ton of photos of the guy from the latest Texas Motor Speedway media event. The Red Bull Racing driver was in town to promote next week’s Dickies 500 Sprint Cup race by riding a mechanical bull.

Who needs Formula One racing? I think Speed has found his home in NASCAR.
