Actor comedian Bill Engvall will serve as grand marshal for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LifeLock 400 on Sunday, June 15 at Michigan International Speedway. Engvall, star of TBS’s “The Bill Engvall Show,” which will have its second season premiere on Thursday, June 12 at 9/8c, will give the command to start engines for the Father’s Day event.

Engvall, also host of CMT’s “Country Fried Home Videos,” has appeared on “Blue Collar TV”, a comedy sketch show based on the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour, the Movie” in which he starred and solidified his place as a popular comedic icon.

Engvall has starred in several movies, including “Delta Farce” in 2007 with fellow Blue Collar comedian Larry the Cable Guy. He recently completed work on a movie with country music star Billy Ray Cyrus entitled “Bait Shop” which will be released on DVD in September.

“I’m very excited to be serving as the grand marshal for the LifeLock 400 at MIS,” Engvall said. “It’s an honor that I can say the most famous words in motorsports in front of the great fans of MIS.”

To celebrate the Army’s 233rd birthday, the U.S. Army Chorus A Capella Team will be making its second appearance at MIS during pre-race ceremonies for the LifeLock 400. The team will sing the “Star-Spangled Banner” and the Canadian national anthem prior to the LifeLock 400.

In June 2007, the team performed at MIS for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event and received much fanfare. Due to the overwhelming comments of support from the fans, the chorus was asked to come back and perform again for the LifeLock 400.

One of the members of the Army Chorus’ A Capella Team is a proud Michigan native. Army Sgt. First Class Cliff Ogea hails from Ishpeming, in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula.

To get your tickets for its 40th anniversary in 2008, MIS is hosting the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LifeLock 400 on June 15 and the 3M Performance 400 on August 17. Other events include the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Cool City Customs 200 on June 14, the NASCAR Nationwide Series CARFAX 250 August 16 and the ARCA RE/MAX Series Michigan 200 June 13. Tickets are available for all events, including qualifying days.
