TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron will drive the pace car before NASCAR's Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway.
McCarron will serve as honorary pace car driver Sunday, leading the field around the track before Sunday's Aaron's 499. He'll drive a special Ford Mustang GT.
McCarron has led the Crimson Tide to back-to-back national championships.
He says he's watched races at Talladega before and has ``always had a passion to get up to speed on the track.''
Michael Waltrip's No. 55 Aaron's Toyota will sport an Alabama national championship paint scheme. McCarron and the Tide players got a look at the car before their spring game.
