Former NBA standout Jerome “Junk Yard Dog” Williams will serve as grand marshal for the Victoria‘s Voice Foundation 200 presented by Westgate Resorts NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race on Friday, March 3 at 6 p.m. PST at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (7000 Las Vegas Blvd N, Las Vegas, NV).
Williams, who played for the Pistons, Raptors, Bulls and Knicks during his stellar 9-year NBA career (1996-2004) and was best known for his rugged defense and rebounding, will serve as grand marshal on behalf of Victoria‘s Voice Foundation, a nonprofit that works to combat youth drug addiction. Williams is a longtime advocate of youth and community causes.
As grand marshal, Williams will greet all of the drivers pre-race, deliver the command to start engines and present the winner‘s trophy after the race in Victory Lane.
Founded by David and Jackie Siegel after their daughter, Victoria, 18, died of a drug overdose in 2015, Victoria‘s Voice Foundation is on a mission to change policy, raise awareness and help ensure that Narcan (Naloxone) — the opioid overdose antidote — is more widely available.
