Have you ever wondered what it'd be like to meet your favorite athlete?

Buffalo's own Christian Cichon got the opportunity at one of the most famous racetracks in the entire world.

Cichon, who says he's been a NASCAR fan since birth, won HOT Passes to this weekend's races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The passes give him access to the entire track and allow him to mingle with and meet his favorite drivers, including B.J. McLeod and Matt DiBenedetto.

With the HOT Pass, Chicon is able to sit in the pits all weekend long for the races at IMS, including Saturday's Xfinity Series Lilly Diabetes 250 and Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400.
