AUBURN, Ala. -- The man who likes to go fast will be able to do so at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday. 

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn will serve as the honorary pace car driver for the Aaron's 499 Sprint Car race. He'll be in the car that will lead the drivers during the pre-race pace laps, a fitting place for the man who stresses a hurry-up, no-huddle offense. 

Gov. Robert Bentley will serve as the grand marshal. 

 "We will have a lot of excited fans, many from the state of Alabama, who can’t wait to see them perform their pre-race duties," said Talladega Superspeedway chairman Grant Lynch in a statement. "I know our fans will welcome them to Talladega Superspeedway." 

Malzahn and Bentley's duties will include the driver introductions at the start/finish line.
