Chipper Jones Named Honorary Race Official For Daytona 500

Daytona Beach, FL

Newly elected Baseball Hall of Famer Chipper Jones will serve as an honorary race official for the Daytona 500 on Sunday.

As part of his race-day duties, Jones will be introduced at the drivers' meeting, take a lap around Daytona International Speedway in a parade car and participate in question-and-answer sessions with fans.

A native of nearby Pierson, Jones was voted into the Cooperstown class last month in his first year of eligibility. The eight-time all-star and 1999 National League MVP led the Atlanta Braves to three World Series appearances, including the 1995 championship.
