This years Daytona 500 race series celebrity Pace car will be driven by Hall of Fame Baseball player Cal Ripken Jr. This marks the uniting of two "Great American Past-times" of Baseball and one of its greatest players with the most prestigous American racing event. Ripken is "honoured to part of the race" and believes "Nascar drivers are tremendous athletes." The Daytona 500 starts next month and is known for attracting high profile athletes and and celebrities. Lastly, I hope Mr Ripken Jr. has some experience driving 500 plus horsepower beasts because he will be driving the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Pace car. Enjoy the photos.
