NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - One of NASCAR'S Camping World Truck Series drivers will decide whether swimming with sharks is more dangerous than racing his truck on Tuesday.

NCWTS driver Brendan Gaughan will be diving into Newport Aquarium's "Surrounded by Sharks" exhibit on Tuesday, September 20 at 10:30a.m.

Gaughan will be competing in a 225-mile race at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday, October 1.

The "Kentucky 225" opens a tripleheader Kentucky Speedway race weekend that will also host a 100-mile Firestone Indy Lights race and a 300-mile IZOD IndyCar Series race.
