SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles is set to be the grand marshal at the upcoming Alsco Uniforms 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race.

The race will take place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 6.

As grand marshal, Ingles will announce for drivers to start their engines before the race.

“I couldn’t be more excited to serve as grand marshal for Alsco Uniforms, a big partner of the Utah Jazz, and to support their efforts in the NASCAR community.” Ingles said in a statement.

Alsco Uniforms, who is the event’s main sponsor, is also a sponsor of the Utah Jazz and the official uniform provider of Vivint Arena employees.

“We’re thrilled to have Joe Ingles representing Alsco Uniforms and the great state of Utah as our grand marshal for this upcoming primary sponsorship race. Joe is a great basketball player and such a prominent figure in the community, so to say we’re excited about this opportunity is an understatement,” Ben Fox, director of sales and marketing for Alsco said.

Ingles and the Jazz currently own the NBA’s best record at 27-9.

This season, Ingles is averaging 11.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 4.4 assists in 32 games played.

The race will start on Saturday, March 6 at 2:30 p.m. (MDT). It will broadcast on FS1.
