    Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant has a ton of speed on the basepaths, but that’s nothing compared to what he did behind the wheel of a race car.

    Bryant, who recently took his honeymoon in Austria, visited the iconic Red Bull Ring in the country, and he slid behind the wheel of a high-powered race car to fulfill his need for speed.

    “Tallest racecar driver ever,” he said.

    Bryant’s wife Jessica was along for the ride in the car, and while he had some good moments behind the wheel, he had some spinouts and some other fun along the way as he pushed the car above 100 miles per hour.

    Bryant also got into the passenger seat of an open wheel car, with a professional driver at the wheel. That car got up to 125 MPH, with Bryant enjoying the trip the entire way.
