The two bros spent Sunday together at the Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama, Us Weekly reports. Luyendyk posted a photo of himself with Channing, captioned, "Such a great dude! Fun meeting @channingtatum and getting to lead the field to green in the @Honda IndyCar."

While Luyendyk's fiancée, Lauren Burnham, was not present for the bro-fest, he did get Tatum to record a message for her on Instagram Stories. "What’s up, Lauren," the actor said in the video. "I’m about to do something stupid."

Tatum also commemorated the day on Instagram, posting a collage of pictures of himself (and Luyendyk) at the racetrack. "Crazy fast couple laps in the rain!! Thanks @ariejr! And what an incredibly beautiful track Mr. Barber. Can’t wait to come back here and rip some hot laps," he wrote in the caption.
