It started about a month ago as a Twitter conversation between Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and NASCAR driver and Redskins fan Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Richmond International raceway president Dennis Brickmeier.
It will end up with Griffin behind the wheel of a car at RIR on Saturday.
No, Griffin won’t be competing in the Sprint Cup Toyota Owners 400 on the ¾-mile oval track. But he will be the honorary pace car driver for the event.
The race will be televised by FOX Sports.
