Kyle Busch spends his weekend flying around a race track.

On Wednesday, he flew through a bit of jungle.

Busch put his aerial skills to the test, flying through treetops, braving a Tarzan-like swing and riding a skateboard 50 feet in the air, at the "Go Ape" outdoor experience. His participation was part of a promotion for the April 27 Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

"It was fun to do something different and get out to ride some ropes, enjoy the outdoors and do something that isn't your typical experience," said Busch. "I loved the Tarzan swing. You hook up to the rope, fall off a platform and drop right off. It takes your stomach away from you for a second, but it's fun."

Busch, who has won four consecutive spring races at Richmond, was accompanied on the course by track President Dennis Bickmeier.
