NASCAR race to honor Houston

NASCAR race to honor Houston

Bass-fishing legend Jimmy Houston will give the command to start engines this Saturday at Kentucky Speedway as grand marshal of the NASCAR Cup Series Quaker State 400.

I got to drive the pace car a couple of years ago, so this is another bucket list item I can check off," he said. "It is a special honor to me because not only do I have a lot of NASCAR drivers that are friends of mine, but I know that a tremendous amount of NASCAR fans are also fishing fans.

Houston, who's in his 53rd year of professional fishing and 42nd year as a TV show host, is a two-time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year. He's competed in 15 Bassmaster Classics and one Forrest Wood Cup.
