BROOKLYN, Mich. — Former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr is set to serve as the grand marshal at Michigan International Speedway.
The recent College Football Hall of Fame selection is to do the honors at Sunday’s Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
Track President Roger Curtis says Carr “is a household name in Michigan, and there are a lot of NCAA football fans in the NASCAR garage” who will be excited to meet him.
Carr is to be part of a University of Michigan team attending Sunday’s race to promote Wolverines for Life, an effort to encourage blood, organ and tissue donations.
