WWE's Shawn Michaels to drive NRA 500 pace car

By ESPNDallas.com

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will be behind the wheel of the pace car at Texas Motor Speedway as he leads the 43-car field to the green flag for the NRA 500 on Saturday night.

Michaels, also known for his "Heartbreak Kid" nickname and his signature "Sweet Chin Music" finishing move, will be just the third celebrity to actually be driving the pace car -- joining actor Vince Vaughn (2007) and former Texas Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson (2010).

Michaels is a three-time WWE champion who was inducted into the organization's hall of fame in 2011 after an illustrious 26-year career.
