WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair Named Honorary Pace Car Driver for Coca-Cola 600
Charlotte Motor Speedway is set to host its two biggest races of the year… and they're going to do it with "Flair!" Eight-time WWE Women's Champion Charlotte Flair - a native of Charlotte, North Carolina - will assume honorary pace car driver duties for the Coca-Cola 600 on May 26.
The WWE royalty will lead a field of NASCAR stars including Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Joey Logano and more before the green flag drops on the iconic event.
Flair has won more women's titles than any superstar in WWE history and is the daughter of 16-time world champion Ric Flair. Flair also became the first female superstar in WWE history to main event a singles match on Raw, SmackDown LIVE and a pay-per-view.
