Daytona 500 Preview: NASCAR To Honor Giants' 'NASCAR' Package

When the Super Bowl champion New York Giants put four pass-rushing defensive ends on the field to terrorize opposing quarterbacks, they call that defensive package 'NASCAR.' It is often just too fast and powerful for offensive lines to handle.

Well, with NASCAR's showcase event, the Daytona 500, set for Sunday it seems fitting that NASCAR would include several members of the Giants 'NASCAR' package in the event's festivities.

Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka will be at Daytona International Speedway Sunday and will ride in the Grand Marshal pace car prior to the race. The trio will also be featured in the special Daytona 500 edition of Inside NASCAR on SHOWTIME, which premieres Wednesday, Feb. 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
