NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) favorite Sterling Marlin will be our special guest from 1 p.m.-3 p.m., for our free Ford Fan Day of family fun April 25 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Marlin, who registered a sixth-place finish in our 2005 NASCAR XFINITY Series 300-mile race in his only start at our track, collected 10-victories, 83 top-five and 216 top-10 finishes through 748 NSCS starts from 1976-2009. His career highlights include 1994 and 1995 Daytona 500 titles along with a career-best third-place finishes in the final NSCS standings in 2001 and 1995.

He is scheduled to participate in two racing roundtable discussions alongside our esteemed panel of local experts. Fans planning to attend can make an advance bid on a five-lap pace car ride for three with Marlin, who competed for prominent NSCS team owners Chip Ganassi and Felix Sabates, Larry McClure, the Stavola Brothers, Junior Johnson and Larry Hagan. 

Ford Fan Day guests will have the opportunity to tour our track from the infield to the Spotter's Stand, test drive the 2015 Ford F-150 on our speedway, record a video message for their favorite NASCAR driver that will be featured on Sprint Vision throughout our July 9-11 Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts weekend, enjoy music from NantzLane Band, see TeamZoom Canine demonstrations and more. We'll also feature children's inflatables and activities throughout the day.
