R-Truth Set To Drive Pace Car in Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race

WWE announced today that R-Truth will be driving the pace car in the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star race. The former United States Champion will be at the Charlotte Motor Speedway this Saturday for the race, which starts at 8 PM Eastern this Saturday. R Truth hails from Charlotte, North Carolina, as does Charlotte Flair. She’ll be driving the pace car at the Coca-Cola 600, which will occur on Sunday, May 26.

One hopes that NASCAR officials have briefed R-Truth on the rules of being a pace car driver. If left to his own devices, he may stop the car in the middle of the track to initiate stock car racing’s first officially sanctioned dance break. The race broadcast begins with the Monster Energy Open at 6 PM on Fox Sports 1.
