MLive: Detroit Red Wing Niklas Kronwall, Olympic swimmer Tyler Clary and ‘Hardcore Pawn’ star Seth Gold to kick off NASCAR race at MIS Speedway

By | Uncategorized

BROOKLYN, MI – It’s not every day that the stars align in Michigan.

Detroit Red Wings alternate captain Niklas Kronwall will serve as the grand marshal for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn; Olympic gold medalist swimmer Tyler Clary, who trained at University of Michigan. will serve as the honorary starter for the race; and Seth Gold of Detroit’s “Hardcore Pawn” will serve as pace car driver.

MIS President Roger Curtis said he’s excited to have these three people start the race Sunday. He said he follows each of their careers, and they were chosen because he believes they are some of the most popular Michigan figures and they elicit pride for the state.

“We’ve tried to pick people who are somewhat iconic with the state,” he said. “And hockey is just a natural fit for us, period. Hockey fans and NASCAR fans are just one in the same.”

Kronwall, who will command of the drivers to start their engines, said he has never attended a race like this but is excited to be part of the experience. He said what he has seen so far has been “spectacular,” especially seeing how many people come from all over the country to support the drivers.

“I’ve always been a fan of speed,” he said. “I’m very excited to learn more about it and how it works behind the scenes. There’s so much more that goes into it than just the drivers.”

Clary, who will wave the green flag to start the race, said he has been a racing fan for a long time, and he wants to make NASCAR his next career. He joked he hopes he doesn’t ruin the beginning of the race with his clumsiness.

“All I can say is that I hope I have an extra large set of earmuffs,” he joked. “And I hope I don’t drop that sucker.”

Gold said he took out the pace car earlier Sunday morning, but he said it was really stressful. However, he said he doesn’t think he will be able to drive more than 200 miles per hour Sunday afternoon.

“Hopefully I have honed my skills to set the course right,” he said.
