Soon-to-be clean shaven Ryan Blaney had lunch with fans at Texas Motor Speedway during a break from a Goodyear tire test Wednesday.

Blaney was one of four NASCAR Cup drivers taking part in the two-day test that ended Wednesday. Blaney had told fans on social media that he would be in the stands during the lunch break.

On a chilly day, Blaney spent his lunch break outside with fans. He signed autographs, took pictures and ate pizza.

Blaney is now driving the No. 12 Ford for Team Penske after making the playoff chase last year with the one-car Wood Brothers organization.
He has been sporting a throwback mustache and long hair, but said he has an appointment Friday to get clean-shaven. He says that will definitely let him know the season is almost here, and that it's time to start looking like a professional.
