NASCAR great Brandon Jones was on site to take a tour of Fort Benning on Thursday.

He took a tour of the Clark Sim Center and two other locations.

He was also able to interact with service men and women on the base.

Jones says he has always had an interest in military matters.

"Been an Army, military fan for a long time, and I have a lot of family members in the service, so it's pretty cool to come down and see what they do,” Jones said. “I'm sure they care about what I get to do but it's neat to see what they do on a daily basis."

Afterwards, Jones stopped by the Boys and Girls Club of the Chattahoochee Valley to speak to the kids in the program.

Jones is gearing up for an exciting 2016 season of competition and was recently named by NASCAR.com as one of the five young drivers to watch.
