The 25-year-old Vampire Diaries star was spotted rubbing elbows with other drivers like Denny Hamlin and Jeff Gordon.
“While everyone in my bus is excited about meeting @JuanPaGalavis I was pumped to meet @ninadobrev,” Denny wrote on Twitter.
Just before the race started, Nina grabbed a pic with Jeff and wrote: “#NASCAR selfie alert. With legend @jeffgordonweb before the big race! Shout out Trent! #Daytona500″
