The Louisiana IceGators and the Dayton Bombers will each host NASCAR night on Friday.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s #8 car will be on display at the Cajundome and fans will be allowed to take up close photographs with the car in exchange for a $10 donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospitals. The IceGators will wear special NASCAR jerseys which will be auctioned off following the game.
Sterling Martin will sign autographs and drop the ceremonial first puck at the Bombers game. Marlin became only the third drive in history to win back-to-back Dayton 500s, accomplishing the feat in 1994-95.
