Sonoma Raceway has announced that actor Luke Wilson (Old School, Legally Blonde) will be the honorary pace car driver for next weekend’s Sprint Cup race at Sonoma Raceway.

Wilson, who stars in Showtime’s new TV series Roadies that premieres June 26, will drive the pace car prior to the green flag of the race.

“I feel incredibly honored to be asked to lead the field of cars to the green,” said Wilson in a press release. “I have never done anything like this before and I’m really excited to start off the race at the Toyota/Save Mart 350.”

Last year, the honorary pace car driver was actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
