Christian McCaffrey knows a thing or two about going fast. 

On Sunday, the Panthers' speedy running back will get a chance to show off his driving skills as the honorary pace car driver for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. 

When it was mentioned to the 2019 All-Pro that the track record is around 200 mph, the competitive McCaffrey seemed to take that as a personal challenge.
