Sterling Marlin and Kentucky Speedway gave Cincinnati Cyclones hockey fans a taste of the upcoming NASCAR Winston Cup season on Saturday, Feb. 2, at The Firstar Center.

Marlin drove his No. 40 Coors Light Dodge to center ice for a one-on-one interview, had a chance to meet fans during a private autograph session, drove in a relay go kart race with fans, and dropped the ceremonial first puck to start the game.

Kentucky Speedway's Horsepower mascot also was on hand to interact with fans and Cyclones mascot Snowbird.
