Actor, comedian, and motorhead Jay Leno will serve as the Indianapolis GP’s Grand Marshal later this month when MotoGP makes its last stop in the United States for the year. Leno’s duties include presenting the Winner’s Trophy at the end of the race, and we have it on good authority that his chin will be waiving the checkered flag at the race’s conclusion (this last statement may have been fabricated for comedic purposes).
Leno’s presence at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix makes the second time this year that Jay Leno has been involved with MotoGP, as he opened up his garage to Yamaha riders Colin Edwards, Ben Spies, and Jorge Lorenzo last month during the Laguna Seca GP. If you’re at the Indy GP, keep an eye out for Jay and his entourage roaming the pits on Sunday.
