Joe Dirt 2” Star to Give Command “Drivers, start your engines

Actor, comedian and writer David Spade, who stars in Crackle’s upcoming original movie “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser” will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 57th annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday night, July 5 at Daytona International Speedway (TV – NBC; Radio – MRN Radio, SiriusXM).

In this sequel to the popular Columbia Pictures comedy “Joe Dirt,” Spade returns as the mullet-headed hero in this first ever made-for-digital sequel to a major motion picture that also stars Christopher Walken, Brittany Daniel and Patrick Warburton. “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser” will be released on the streaming network July 16.

As the Grand Marshal for the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola, Spade will give the command “Drivers, start your engines.” Along with the starting command, Spade will also attend the driver’s meeting, participate in pre-race ceremonies and ride in one of the Grand Marshal cars during the pace laps prior to the green flag of the 160-lap, 400-mile race.

“We’re excited to welcome David Spade as Grand Marshal for the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood said. “His starting command, which will be delivered in front of thousands of fans and millions more watching on NBC, will begin an exciting night of NASCAR racing on the high banks.”
