Charlotte, North Carolina - Mark Zuckerberg, the man responsible for connecting the world via Facebook, lives a pretty humble life.

At least that's according to the numerous media outlets reporting on his lifestyle.

But not only does he run Facebook in a T-shirt and sandals (who knows, maybe he does), whenever he has a chance he is involved with charity work and outreach programmes.

Swapping seats

But on Wednesday (March 15) Zuckerberg decided to do something a little different. He traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina and met up with Nascar driver Dale Earnheart Jnr.

This wasn't just a "meet and greet" where the two men shake hands and be on their merry way. No. This was actually Zuckerberg's first step to getting behind the wheel.

And then it happened: after a brief introduction Zuckerberg slipped into the driver's seat and set off around the track. And judging from the video, he utterly enjoyed himself!
