Kellen Winslow Will Serve As Honorary Race Official For NASCAR Race, Stay Far Away From Motocross

Posted By on Tue, Jun 23, 2009 at 2:53 PM

In a continuation of today's blog theme, which is random bits of news that aren't really news or that interesting at all, here's another story about Kellen Winslow Jr.

The new Tampa Bay tight end will serve as the honorary race official for the Coke Zero 400 on July 4.

Winslow, a first-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns and recently acquired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will attend the driver’s meeting, participate in driver introductions and ride in one of the pace cars prior to the green flag waving on the Independence Day holiday classic.

“The Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola is a must-see NASCAR event that traditionally attracts celebrities and athletes from all around,” Daytona International Speedway President Robin Braig said. “We’re excited to welcome a talented NFL star such as Kellen Winslow and look forward to his participation in pre-race festivities.”
