Robert Griffin III driving pace car at Richmond NASCAR race

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

The life of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is never dull. The ... pace will really pick up soon though when he finds himself on Saturday night ... in the fast lane.

Seriously, though, all Horatio Caine lines aside, RG3 will be the Honorary Grand Marshall in the pace car in an upcoming NASCAR race in Richmond.

Like everything else in life, it started with a Dale Earnhardt, Jr., tweet.

Didn't take long for Dennis Bickmeier with Richmond International Raceway to jump all over there and express their interest as well.

Add in a little more pressure from Dale and voila! You've got RG3 behind the wheel of a slow-moving automobile.

What will that car look like? Glad you asked:

The good news is that no matter how poorly this goes, it'll be less of a wreck than the Redskins were last year.
