Ronnie Mund, also known as “Ronnie the Limo Driver” from “The Howard Stern Show” on SiriusXM, has been selected to drive the Chevrolet Silverado pace truck for the 1-800-Car-Cash Mud Summer Classic NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race Wednesday night at Eldora Speedway.
“I was blown away when I got the invite,” Mund said. “I’m so excited and especially honored that it is at Tony’s (Stewart) track. I can’t wait to experience the legendary Eldora and an event that is becoming a must-see event for NASCAR fans.”
Mund has worked with Stern since 1985. He will work with Stern on Wednesday morning and then fly to Ohio for the race.
“This is a dream come true for Ronnie,” said Roger Slack, general manager of Eldora. “He is a huge NASCAR fan, a big fan of what we do here at Eldora and we’re pumped to have him drive the Chevrolet Silverado pace truck outfitted with SiriusXM in the 1-800-Car-Cash Mud Summer Classic.”
The 150-lap Truck Series race is contested in 60-50-40 lap segments. As is dirt-track tradition, the starting field is set by five qualifying heat races.
For the third straight year, the American Legion Post 648 Honor Guard from St. Henry, Ohio , will present the colors of the United States and the St. Henry (Ohio) High School marching band will perform the National Anthem.
