Mund has worked with Stern since 1985. He will work with Stern on Wednesday morning and then fly to Ohio for the race.
“This is a dream come true for Ronnie,” said Roger Slack, general manager of Eldora. “He is a huge NASCAR fan, a big fan of what we do here at Eldora and we’re pumped to have him drive the Chevrolet Silverado pace truck outfitted with SiriusXM in the 1-800-Car-Cash Mud Summer Classic.”
