Trace Adkins Named Grand Marshal of NASCAR Race

Trace Adkins will be the grand marshal and honorary starter for the Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va., on March 29. As grand marshal, Adkins will lead a contingency of 500 men, women and their families selected to serve as honorary grand marshals. “Trace Adkins is the perfect pick for this task,” said Martinsville Speedway president Clay Campbell. “He is a working man, and all working people identify with him. He’s a race fan, too. He understands the sport, and he knows how hard our fans work so they can come out on the weekends to enjoy NASCAR racing.”
