Kid Rock was a rapper, then he was the bullgod, I mean hell, he's even gone country.  But now, Bob Ritchie will be able to add something else to his resume, Grand Marshall of the Michigan 400. 

Nothing says "Pure Michigan" like fast ass race cars and Kid Rock, and if you're at the Michigan 400, you'll get your fill of both.  The race happens at the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, MI on August 19th  and Kid Rock will serve as the Grand Marshall for the event.

Kid Rock was chosen by state officials for his high profile and his involvement with many Michigan charities.  Rock will be responsible for giving the "Gentlemen, Start Your Engines" at the beginning of the race and probably drinking 100 beers.
