MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) Two NASCAR truck drivers visited a Henry County elementary school today and got a little crafty.

Camping World Truck Series drivers Chase Briscoe and Austin Cindric carved pumpkins with first and fifth graders at Rich Acres Elementary.

It was actually Briscoe's first time carving a pumpkin, but the kids helped him out.

The drivers say they enjoy getting out in the community and talking to kids, because they could be the future of racing.

"If they come to the race they might be hooked for life so I think it's definitely huge. I know from a young age is when I got the addiction to go racing, so you never know who the next one might be," says Camping World Truck Series Driver, Chase Briscoe.

Both drivers are racing in the Camping World Truck Series Texas Roadhouse 200, which is set for this Saturday at Martinsville Speedway.
