Annual race at Talladega Superspeedway Aaron’s 312

National radio star Bubba the Love Sponge® has been named Grand Marshal for the 2009 Aaron’s 312 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Alabama on Saturday, April 25.

The 312-mile race is sponsored by Aaron Rents, Inc., and is part of Aaron’s Dream Weekend at Talladega. The Aaron’s 312 race, one of the most popular in racing, is scheduled to be broadcast live on ABC-TV.

“We are thrilled that Bubba will be giving the command to start the Aaron’s 312,” stated Ken Butler, Chief Operating Officer of Aaron Rents, Inc. “Bubba’s love of racing is very apparent and I believe his ‘Bubba Army’ fan base is a perfect fit for Aaron’s and NASCAR.”

Bubba’s Grand Marshal duties will include greeting each of the drivers as they are announced on the driver introduction stage, addressing the crowd of more than 145,000 and issuing the most famous words in racing: “Gentlemen, start your engines.”

“I couldn’t be more honored or excited,” said Bubba, whose No. 1-rated syndicated talk and entertainment radio program reflects his enthusiasm for racing.

Bubba currently owns the 8-car race team, CRI (Clem Racing, Inc.), consisting of two dirt late models driven by him and renowned late model driver Keith Nosbich; Bubba’s 6-year-old son, Tyler Clem; and 9-year-old Michael Atwell, along with four quarter midgets driven by Tyler and Michael, as well. The team competes across the US, and has major corporate sponsorships. Tyler and Michael are also two of the youngest drivers to enjoy development deals with Stewart/Hass Racing, Tony Stewart’s new NASCAR racing team.

    Bubba needs to keep his thoughts to himself when he talks bad about Dale Jr. We fans know Jr is a fine and honest young man and all of us will follow him no matter what.Bubba needs to go play with Howard Stern and stay out of NASCAR.

  28. jenny

    I agree with that Craig dude in Florida

  29. jenny

    He sounds like he knows what he is talking about…Shake and Bake Bubba!!!!

    Good Job Bubba! I was listening on Sirius and when you made the announcement. For a second I thought you said something bad and they bleeped you, but after further review (love that rewind) I realized the crowd couldn’t be heard very well. It would have been funny though. Love the show and screw the (Jr.) haters.

  33. DARRYL

    Great way to start a race! It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

  34. teabhone

    Bubba, big fan from Newport Beach,Ca. Saw you on Saturday on big time T.V. ABC. Great job, Been a fan from day three. The very best to you and you’re team.

  35. Mark

    My 18th Trip to Dega, it was cool to see you there Bubba I was front and center as you did the grand marshall thing you did a great job dude!

    DEGA RULES!!!!


  38. Jr SUX!!!

    Bubba hit the nail on the head about Jr. He is not gods gift to racing like evryone of his fans thinks he is. He is not and never will be his daddy. If his last name was anything but Earnhardt, he would be just an average nascar driver!!!!!

  39. KC

    Forgot to tape the damn race! Thanks for putting up the “start your engings” on btls.

  40. KC

    oops – that should be engines.

    [...] too dirty. Yucko the Clown called in on a shitty cellphone. The crew listened to a clip of Bubba the Love Sponge performing his Grand Marshall duties at yesterday’s AARON’S 312. Howard suffered through Lindsay Lohan’s cover of “I Want You To Want Me.” [...]
