John Cena Talks Daytona 500, The Rock, WWE Stars Being Into NASCAR
Source: The Miami HeraldThe Miami Herald has an interview with John Cena, who discusses being be the honorary race starter at the Daytona 500 this Saturday.
Being the race starter this Saturday: "I am so honored to be able to start this great race. To me, not only being a car enthusiast but to now really being into NASCAR as well, it's something I really can't believe is happening, and I won't get the full effect until I'm up there for the second lap and they come by at about 190 miles an hour."
If he owns better cars than The Rock: "Yes. I'm sure Rocky can buy whatever he wants, but as an enthusiast I have a few 200 mile per hour cars locked up in safe keeping."
If he would sponsor a NASCAR: "I see my face getting wrecked enough in the ring. I don't know if I can see my face getting wrecked on the wall, if something bad were to happen."
WWE stars being into NASCAR: "I know a few [WWE] guys are into it. I can't necessarily say some money has exchanged hands [among WWE personnel] because that would be wrong, but some points go back and forth every weekend when the [NASCAR] guys race because we have a few eyes that watch very closely on the weekend.
"I'd say about 60 percent of our crew — from superstars to techs to everybody — are into NASCAR. When I tell you as a group we all watch on weekends, we all watch on weekends."
