Jenner Named Grand Marshal For Royal Purple 300

Reality television star and U.S. Olympic Medalist Bruce Jenner will serve as Grand Marshal for Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series Royal Purple 300 at Auto Club Speedway. As Grand Marshal, Jenner will give the most famous command in racing, “Gentlemen, Start Your Engines. 

Jenner captivated audiences during the 1976 Olympic Games, winning a Gold Medal in the Decathlon event. He graced magazine covers, Wheaties boxes and was hailed as the World’s Greatest Athlete, yet it’s the story behind his continuing success that keeps him on the road as one of America’s best motivational speakers. After working as an insurance salesman during his Olympic training, then starting and running his own aviation company, Jenner now speaks to businessmen and sales corporations of all experience levels.

As reality TV’s favorite dad, Jenner’s audience now extends to fans of the E! Network hit show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Having recently completed the sixth season of the show, the father of 10 oversees a Kardashian-Jenner family that features a number of entrepreneurs. Jenner himself is involved in a variety of business ventures, including his own production company, Jenner Communications. He is an avid golfer, and spends much of his leisure time on the golf course or flying motorized helicopters.

Tickets to the Royal Purple 300 start as low as $30. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 800-944-RACE (7223), log on or visit the Auto Club Speedway ticket office.

    "...flying motorized helicopters."

    As opposed to unmotorized helicopters?
