The Almost Famous star, who is a big fan of the sport, will signal the start of the five-hour Sprint Cup Series event at the Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania - and Lee can't wait to step on the fabled track.

Speaking on TV's Live with Regis and Kelly on Friday, he says, "I will be the grand marshall. I will get to say, 'Gentleman, start your engines!' I'm just gonna yell it as loud as I can. It's gonna be great, I love NASCAR."
