Automobile legend Carroll Shelby and television star Kim Kardashian will serve as co-grand marshals for Sunday’s Shelby American NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Kardashian and Shelby will share the microphone when it comes time to give the command to start engines. “Of course, I will have my rooting interest during the race,” Kardashian said, referring to Tommy Baldwin Racing’s No. 36 Chevrolet driven by Mike Bliss, which will feature a special paint scheme, celebrating the launch of her new fragrance. “But I’m really looking forward to meeting all the drivers. It’s such a tremendous honor to serve as co-Grand Marshal and I’m really looking forward to experiencing a Sprint Cup race up close.”
Kim stars in the E! network television series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, on Sunday nights. Shelby has raced and designed cars for more than 50 years and is known throughout the world for his legendary Cobra and Shelby GT350. His company, Shelby Automobiles, Inc. is headquartered in Las Vegas and also is the sponsor of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at LVMS.
