"DRIVERS... start your engines!" Vroom vroom.
Those awesome southern rockers The Marshall Tucker Band will utter those four words on national television this weekend. The MTB have been tapped to grand marshal this weekend's NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The Nationwide Series Sam's Town 300 race takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada this Saturday, March 9 and will air live nationally on ESPN2 at 4PM EST.
"We are so excited to be associated with this Nationwide Series NASCAR race," said MTB lead singer Doug Gray. "We've always been big supporters of NASCAR so this opportunity came as a welcome surprise."
The MTB will give the official order for drivers to start their engines, followed by John Sou, General Manager of the Sam's Town 300, dropping the green flag to start the race.
What a cool experience for the MTB! Fire up those engines, boys.
