Owen Wilson Named Grand Marshal for the 59th Annual Daytona 500


Owen Wilson has done many things, but children (and Disney fans alike) know him as the voice of Lightning McQueen from the popular Cars franchise. The Daytona 500 has made Owen Wilson the Grand Marshal for the 59th Annual Daytona 500 on February 26, at Daytona International Speedway. The race starts at 2:00pm on Fox, following Wilson delivering the famous “Drivers, start your engines” command to the cars. He will also ride in one of the Grand Marshal cars during pace laps before the green flag of the 200-laps, and attend the drivers meeting. Not bad for the voice of a race car, right?


Cars 3 opens nationwide on June 16, with Wilson continuing his voice work as Lightning McQueen.
