We know this is a football blog, and we know this is not exactly football ... But we thought it provided a little insight into some off-the-field activities of a member of the Eagles.
Eagles kicker David Akers is an avid auto racing fan.
He was the one who organized a visit to Dover International Speedway for his teammates in which a number of Eagles drove the Monster Mile. He invited NASCAR driver Martin Truex to training camp last summer.
Akers was back behind the wheel Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee.
