You’d think the Daytona 500 was pretty hyped already, but when Gronk, Mojo and the crew came to town on Sunday the energy levels were through the roof.

And some crazy people even gave Rob a mic and let him interview the Monster Energy race girls! Now that was daring …

While the top speeds of drivers like winner Kyle Busch hit 143 m.p.h., Gronk of course tried to get the hot hosts to say their favorite speed are 69. “So is it close to 70?” he asked, sadly his victim didn’t get the joke and just said she liked to go hard and fast.

A day full of world class drivers, Monster Energy drinks and race girls — what could be better? “I’m a fan of both of ’em,” Gronk said afterwards. “I make the girls make my own drink so I get the benefit of both.”

Gronk is not allowed to get into dangerous situations while he rehabs his back for the 2017 season, but luckily his sturdy sidekick Goon was there to save the day.

“I got my one boy, Bobby Goons. He does all the stunt double (work) for me I’m not allowed to do. He rode a bull about a couple of weeks ago in New York,” Gronk said, when challenged to ride the Monster Energy motorcycle “Ball of Death” in the fan zone.

Goon manned up and did some cool stunts in a Monster truck that captivated Rob, Papa Gronk and the rest of the party team.
