Daytona 500 winner to visit Mavericks on Tuesday

Even before the command to "Start Your Engines" is given, the winner of Sunday's Daytona 500 already has a prior engagement in downtown Dallas on Tuesday night.

Texas Motor Speedway has arranged for the winner of NASCAR's season-opening race to attend the Mavericks-New Jersey Nets game at American Airlines Center. That driver will visit with the 2011 NBA champions and coach Rick Carlisle, who will present a personalized jersey.

The driver also will meet with fans, who have the opportunity to win a pair of suite tickets and a meet-and-greet with the Daytona winner as part of a promotion through Texas Motor Speedway.
