Kid Rock named LifeLock 400 grand marshalShare
Detroit’s own Kid Rock will serve as Grand Marshal for the LifeLock 400 at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday, June 14 track officials announced today.
His current album "Rock 'N Roll Jesus" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top-200 chart and has sold 5 million copies around the world. The Detroit native recently announced his summer tour, presented by Red Stag by Jim Beam™ Bourbon, which includes a weekend party in his hometown at Comerica Park, July 17th and 18th.
“I’m a huge race fan, so being asked to be Grand Marshal for the Michigan race to help kick off my summer tour with Red Stag seemed like a fun way to get the word out,” Kid Rock said.
The multi-platinum recording artist will headline pre-race activities, including being recognized during driver introductions, give the famous command for drivers to start their engines and ride in the Grand Marshal car leading the field during the ceremonial parade laps. In addition, Kid Rock will join the No. 7 Jim Beam driver, Robby Gordon in the speedway’s fan hospitality club, Acceleration.
The command for the LifeLock 400 at Michigan International Speedway is set for 2:07 p.m. Sunday, June 14. The green flag is set to wave at 2:16 p.m.
