FORT WORTH, Texas -- Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sainders attended the Firestone 550 on Saturday as guests of Marco Andretti and Andretti Autosport.
"This is unbelievable," Sanders said as the race began. "You see it on TV and you read about it, but it's so much bigger. I'm getting a full education. I like to watch guys in their profession, so to see Marco walk around with a little bit of anxiety, he's so excited to race he can't sit still.
"He's got that swagger. His hair is flawless. He has his shades on. I like that. That's who I want to be when I grow up."
