Clark Named Grand Marshal For Sunday's Brickyard 400
Colts Pro Bowl tight end Dallas Clark, who helped the club to a second Super Bowl appearance in four years last season while having the finest season in franchise history at his position, will serve as the grand marshal of the Brickyard 400 on Sunday, July 25 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Clark will wave the green flag to send the field of 43 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers at speed into Turn 1 at IMS. The race starts at 1 p.m. (ET).
"Being a NASCAR fan, it is an honor to be grand marshal for the Brickyard 400," Clark said. "We were at training camp for so many years prior to this, so it will be my first opportunity to see a race at the Brickyard. I am really excited."
Clark, an eight-year NFL veteran, holds Colts' career tight end marks for receptions and touchdowns, and in 2009 became the second tight end in NFL history to have at least 100 receptions in one season.
