Cowboys’ Witten To Drive Pace Car

FORT WORTH, Texas — Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will be honored by Texas Motor Speedway by receiving the opportunity to drive the official pace car to start Sunday’s Duck Commander 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

Witten, with the guidance of NASCAR pace car driver Brett Bodine, will be behind the wheel of the Chevrolet SS Official Pace Car that will lead the 43-car field to the green flag for the Duck Commander 500, which begins at 2 p.m.

“I’m honored to be asked to drive the pace car on Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway,” Witten said. “I’ll be in town to cheer on Denny Hamlin and the No. 11 FedEx team and raise awareness for their special March of Dimes paint scheme, and it will be a cool experience to get behind the wheel before the drop of the green flag.”

Witten, 31, has spent his entire 11-year career with the Cowboys, where he has earned All-Pro honors six times and has been voted to the Pro Bowl on nine occasions. He has recorded a franchise-record 879 receptions for 9,799 yards and 52 touchdowns in his illustrious career.
