Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom and Detroit Lions draft pick Ndamukong Suh will both be key participants at Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway.â†µ
Lidstrom will drive the Ford Mustang GT pace car, and Suh will be an honorary official for the race. It’s always good to see guys from the Detroit teams supporting other sporting events in Michigan when they’re not playing.â†µ
Lidstrom, 40, recently announced he would be returning to the Red Wings, signing a one-year deal last week. Suh was picked second overall by the Lions in the NFL draft in April.
