ESPN's Kenny Mayne hangs with Johnson, Junior
Longtime ESPN personality on hand at Hendrick Motorsports and for pit training

Kenny Mayne, one of ESPN's franchise talents, was on hand at Hendrick Motorsports on Tuesday morning to film an interview segment with six-time and current Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus.

The No. 48 and No. 88 (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) teams themselves were spending the day working on mock pit stop runs in preparation for the season-opening Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, which get underway Feb. 13.

Johnson and Mayne teamed up for a pretty entertaining interview a few years back as well, where the pair touched on a number of things -- including Jeff Gordon's mustache.

At one point, Mayne can be seen sitting inside the cockpit of the No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet SS, but then said in a Tweet, "They wouldn't let me drive."
