Desperate Housewives star James Denton isn’t hushing about his love for baseball, in fact, he's proud of it! He even bought his own team, the Fullerton Flyers in March. Lately, baseball isn't the only sport that has been making him preoccupied. Later this month, Denton is set to appear at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana. |
Last week, an announcement was made that he will be serving as the Grand Marshall for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard. July 29 will mark the race's 14th run, which will be the season's first NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series event aired on ESPN.
James Denton, who plays plumber Mike Delfino on the ABC hit series, is expected to also appear in the pre-race activities, including the waving of the ceremonial green flag that signals the start of the race.
"This is an incredible honor to be named the grand marshal for this year's Allstate 400 at the Brickyard," Denton said enthusiastically. "I'm a huge sports fan, so to be able to wave the green flag at one of NASCAR's premier races is going to be an amazing experience."
The 44 year old actor entered the entertainment industry at quite a late age, however, he has proven himself worthy of the fame, as he has done a number of projects such as his appearances on films Primary Colors and Face-Off. He also recently concluded work on two new movies, Tortured and Custody. As for television, he has appeared as guest on several shows, but Desperate Housewives was the show to launch him to fame.
In talking about Denton, Joe Tripodi, Allstate chief marketing officer, said, "As a well-known TV personality on a very popular show and an avid sports enthusiast, James is an ideal ambassador for this monumental race. We are proud to make him an integral part of the festivities."
Tickets for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard are available for purchase at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s official website or the Ticket Office, which can be reached by phone. Parking and camping permits are also available through the website, phone or the Ticket Office.
