NASCAR legend Darrell Waltrip joined Haley Barbour on the campaign trail Thursday.
The two made a pit stop in Meridian at the Chunky River Harley Davidson.
A swarm of fans greeted Waltrip, who toured the state with Barbour.
"I'm here today because I believe in the things he believes in," Waltrip said. "He's a Republican. I'm a Republican. And, not only that, but he's a fun guy to hang out with."
Barbour said he welcomed the support of the NASCAR legend.
Barbour faces incumbent Gov. Ronnie Musgrove and three other candidates in the general election next Tuesday.
