-- The Colorado Speed Festival sent out the following today… Coronado Speed Festival Names Bill Goldberg as Honorary Grand Marshal SAN DIEGO, Sept. 23 -- He's famed for his catchphrase, "Who's Next?," but as honorary Grand Marshal of the upcoming Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival, Bill Goldberg's more important aphorism will be "Gentlemen, start your engines!" The 13th annual Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival will take place Sept. 25-26 at Naval Air Station North Island. Goldberg is a former professional wrestler who holds the distinct record of having the longest undefeated streak in World Championship Wrestling with 173 consecutive victories. In 1997, he defeated Hulk Hogan for the World Championship Wrestling heavyweight title, earning him recognition as one of the 100 most powerful people in the sports industry by The Sporting News. Today, Goldberg's passions extend into charitable causes benefitting animals, children and education. In addition, he's an avid car buff with an extensive collection of restored cars, and a love for auto racing. As the host of DIY Network's Garage Mahal, Goldberg rips out homeowners' disastrous garages and alters them into mind-blowing living spaces. The Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival features more than 200 historic automobiles that will race at high speeds on a spectator-friendly 1.7-mile course constructed in mere days on the runways and taxiways of the military base.
