The Giants named their defensive front with four speedy ends NASCAR to signify how fast they were. Now three of the four will be seeing just how fast the real NASCAR drivers go.

Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck (just off shoulder surgery) and Mathias Kiwanuka will be at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday for the 54th running of NASCAR's Daytona 500. The players will ride in the Grand Marshal pace car during pre-race festivities for NASCAR’s season-opening crown jewel event.

The race will air on FOX.

The one NASCAR player for the Giants who apparently won’t be there is Jason Pierre-Paul, which is odd because he’s the only one of them who hails from Florida.

Then again, Kiwanuka is from Indianapolis. Guess they didn't want to wait until they got to the Brickyard.
