AIR FORCE ACADEMY — NASCAR star Bubba Wallace visited Colorado Springs for the first time Tuesday.

He spent most of the day at the Air Force Academy where he was supposed to do a tandem parachute jump. High winds prevented the jump from happening.

Instead of doing the jump, he spent time at the Academy Testing Lab challenging his reflexes and coordination.

"I've always enjoyed being in Colorado for whatever it is, skiing, vacation, but seeing this, seeing what the Academy is all about...and we're not even done yet, we're going to see a lot more things today," Wallace said.

Watson will drive in a race in Richmond on Saturday.
