There’s having a good time during the summer with friends and then there’s allowing Redskins legend John Riggins to show you a great time.

Riggins, a first-team All-Pro in 1983 after a whopping 24 touchdowns and the man who ran straight up the Miami Dolphins’ gut to give the Redskins their first Super Bowl victory, hosts a 30-minute show on CSN Washington called “Riggo on the Range.”

As described on Riggoontherange.com, the show “follows John and his guests around the country in pursuit of extraordinary hunting and outdoor adventures. In an added twist, John retires to the kitchen to show the audience how to prepare a gourmet meal using his prey. The combination of John’s colorful personality, his life-long love of the outdoors and his passion for the culinary arts makes Riggo on the Range different from anything else on TV.”

His passion for the great outdoors was on full display in a recent episode with former Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs.

The preview hinted at the fact that Riggins was going to take Gibbs for a ride in the Riggobago at Charlotte Motor Speedway, a track Gibbs has had great success at in NASCAR.

Little did he know, though, was he was in store for. Found in this article by The Washington Post is video of their ride together where Gibbs admitted that he was “a little nervous” as the behemoth of a vehicle rolled out onto the track.

As the Riggobago hit max speed, 82 MPH, Gibbs joked that there were other vehicles demanding Riggins pull over.

Riggins eventually did—in Victory Lane.
