Chris Pratt, star of the new Guardians of the Galaxy is at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway today to lead the cars around driving the Chevy pace car. Pratt is new to NASCAR but stated he is looking forward to leading the cars around the track. Pratt told a room of reporters that he is looking forward to being signed by NASCAR after his laps leading the 37 cars around the track today for the Brickyard 400. He was amazed at how smooth his ride was around the track going what he said was a slow 120 mph.
Chris Pratt who is also a star of the show Parks and Recreation set in a fictional city in Indiana has been to the Hoosier state once before. Parks and Recreation filmed a show at Lucas Oil Stadium with several members of the Indianapolis Colts and he was on the field playing catch with Andrew Luck.
On a professional note for Pratt, he is looking forward to playing the hero character like his character, the Star Lord of the new movie Guardians of the Galaxy. He stated that the film has just confirmed their 2nd movie in the series. The Guardians of the Galaxy premieres this Friday, August 1st.
Be sure to watch to see if Christ Pratt makes the turnoff in the pace car today or keep the car on the track and prove his driving skills to NASCAR.
