NASCAR's young stars visit Hollywood movie studios
Drivers takes tours of studios, pictures with Batman's rides

With the NASCAR national series in California this weekend, several young drivers took the opportunity to take in the sites that Hollywood has to offer, specifically movie studios tours. And, oh the fun, that was had.

 

Austin Dillon took his turn on the Batpod, the vehicle used in 2008's "The Dark Knight.".

Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney climbed into the Batmobile, which was also called the Tumbler in 2005's "Batman Begins" and was also used in 2012's "The Dark Knight Rises."


Darrell Wallace Jr. got an up-close look at the Batmobile.

 

Elliott also spent time with the Nimbus 2000 from the Harry Potter series of books and movies. As part of the trip to California, he also took in Wednesday night's San Antonio Spurs' victory over the Los Angeles Lakers as well as a tour of the set of the televison show "NCIS: Los Angeles."

Dylan Kwasniewski also tweeted photos from the group's tour of Paramount Pictures.

On-track activity for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series begins on Friday.
