NASCAR driver Kurt Busch made the most of a rare weekend off from Sprint Cup duties by jetting to Baku, Azerbaijan to see the Haas Formula 1 Team in action.

Busch races for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, co-owned by Gene Haas who entered F1 for the first time this year with his own team.

Busch said to Haas back in 2014 that he was keen to try out the team’s F1 car one day, and was told he could if he won the Chase. He ultimately finished the year 12th in the final standings.

On Sunday, Busch got as close as he has so far to driving the Haas car, getting behind the wheel for pictures ahead of the European Grand Prix.
