Richard Rawlings Named Grand Marshal of Texas Half-Mile
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 18, 2021) – This weekend’s Mission Foods Texas Half-Mile presented by Roof Systems is set to be that much Faster N’ Louder with the announcement that Fort Worth’s own Richard Rawlings will serve as the event’s Grand Marshal.
A locally-based, nationally-known media personality and entrepreneur, Rawlings is the owner of the fabled Gas Monkey Garage and was the star of the mega popular reality show, Fast N’ Loud, which aired more than 150 episodes from 2012-2020.
“I’m super excited to be the Grand Marshal of the AFT Texas Half-Mile this year,” said Rawlings. “I’m looking forward to having an incredible time and hanging out with everyone that attends. As I’ve always said, if we’re going to have fun, it better have a motor in it!”
The announcement by Progressive American Flat Track further adds to the celebratory flavor of a round set at the center of the first-ever Get On! Moto Fest at Texas Motor Speedway.
