Birmingham, Ala. (WHNT) – Bo knows football, Bo knows baseball and now, Bo knows really fast cars.
One of Auburn’s three Heisman Trophy winners served as the Grand Marshal for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham. He also rode in a two-seater that led the field during pace laps.
“I want you all to do me a favor,” said Bo Jackson. “Contact my wife on facebook and beg her to let me have one of those cars. Please do that for me, I’m a car fanatic, I don’t know how…I’m going to get in it, but I like those cars.”
Ryan Hunter-Reay took the checkered flag, with Scott Dixon finishing second and Helio Castroneves taking third.
