TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A local high school hosted a high-speed visitor Thursday afternoon. Dale Earnhardt, Jr., took the stage at Seaman High School as part of his sponsorship by the National Guard.

The NASCAR-driver answered students' questions, including one about the scariest part of driving - which Earnhardt says is flipping the car.

"It was really weird where the car felt like it really wasn't moving and you lose understanding. You lose gravity and you just have to open your eyes to understand where you are and how fast the car is flipping," said Earnhardt.

As part of the visit, students presented him with a Seaman football helmet and baseball cap.

Earnhardt will be behind the wheel Saturday night for the 5 Hour Energy 400, the Kansas Speedway's first night race.
