Degree Men Off-Season Adventures
with Mark Sanchez

Mark Travis John Sanchez (born November 11, 1986) is a quarterback for the New York Jets. He was drafted in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft as the second quarterback and the fifth overall selection by the New York Jets.

Now Sanchez has teamed with Degree Men to help determine his new off-season training schedule and get him ready for next season. Degree Men is all about challenging guys during adrenaline-fueled moments, and as a QB, Mark is always under pressure.

Through the Degree Men Facebook page, fans voted for Sanchez to train with the JR Motorsports Pitcrew and Orange County Fire Brigade.

Last month, he visited the Charlotte Motor Speedway to experience, firsthand, the adrenaline rush of NASCAR. With the help of JR Motorsports and Aric Almirola, Driver of the No. 88 Degree Men Chevrolet, Sanchez learned what it takes to be a pitcrew member and the stomach that is necessary to drive around the race track at nearly 200 MPH.

I must say that I am so jealous of the JR Motorsports tour that Mark experienced. What a great opportunity to learn about NASCAR from the inside out.

You can view more videos on facebook. Sanchez has been spotted at the NASCAR tracks several times since the videos were shot. Most recently he was at Pocono with Jimmie Johnson. Don’t be surprised if Sanchez declares a new sport if the NFL lockout continues.
