PHOENIX – All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will serve as Grand Marshal for the 2012 SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ on Sunday, March 4 at Phoenix International Raceway, it was announced today.

Suh was immediately recognized as one of the most dominant defensive linemen in pro football after being selected second overall by Detroit in the 2010 Draft. In only two seasons, he has registered 102 tackles (75 solo), 14 sacks and one interception while starting all 30 games in which he has played.  Suh, whose first name means “House of Spears,” is a native of Portland, Oregon.

 “We are thrilled to have Ndamukong Suh start the engines for the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ on March 4,” said Bryan R. Sperber, President of Phoenix International Raceway. “His accomplishments on the field have been amazing and I think our fans are going to be excited to welcome him as our Grand Marshal.”

Suh, one of SUBWAY’s famous fans, regularly does his work in the Motor City. On March 4, he will help fuel the energy of ZOOMTOWN U.S.A.® as NASCAR’s top drivers converge on the Phoenix area for one of the region’s biggest annual sporting events. In his role as Grand Marshal, Suh will participate in pre-race festivities and will kick off the race by saying the most famous words in NASCAR, “Gentlemen, start your engines!”

“I am honored to serve as the Grand Marshal of the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™,” said Suh. “I’ve been fortunate to experience motor sports all over the world and am somewhat of an enthusiast. I am really excited to share this Experience with my great friends from SUBWAY, and I can’t wait to give the command.”
