Coach Cal will be driving the pace car at the Quaker State 400 next Saturday in Sparta at Kentucky Speedway.
Today at the Joe Craft Center, Cal snapped a few photos and talked about the honor.
Much like basketball and horse racing, it's an opportunity to bring Kentucky people together according to Cal. Jokingly adding bourbon as well.
An opportunity to see the best of the best the sport has to offer right here in the Commonwealth's backyard.
