There are very few moments in American sports that rival the anticipation and delivery of the command to start the engines for the annual Daytona 500.
NASCAR's biggest race is the very first major auto race of the calendar year, usually held around Valentine's Day, which signals the start of another season, the beginning of a tradition dating back to 1959 where Daytona International Speedway plays host to the most-watched motorsports event in North America. There's over 200,000 fans in attendance, with millions more tuned in to network television coverage around the globe.
The high-profile placement of the individual given the honorary title of Grand Marshal gets to deliver the most famous words in motorsports.
At the Daytona 500 from 2004-2011, I have had the distinct pleasure of working at Daytona Int'l on the public address system. Part of my duties included introducing the Grand Marshal on the PA system, which is carried over TV. It's been a true honor for me to be a part of this motorsports tradition.
The first voice you hear on this video collage is my voice introducing 2004 Daytona 500 Grand Marshal, actor Matthew McConaughey. Enjoy!
