Everyone loves a winner, right?. Members of Big Blue have been showing up all over the place (Knicks games, talk shows) and now we can add the Daytona 500 to the list.

Here's a release from NASCAR:

 Three key defensive stars of the Super Bowl champion New York Giants – Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka - will be at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Sunday (Feb. 26) for the 54th running of NASCAR's Daytona 500 (1 p.m. ET, FOX). The G-Men will ride in the Grand Marshal pace car during pre-race festivities for NASCAR’s season-opening crown jewel event.

 The trio, which employed a particular defensive alignment dubbed the “NASCAR defense” that helped propel the Giants to their world title victory over the New England Patriots earlier this month, will also be featured in the special Daytona 500 edition of Inside NASCAR on SHOWTIME, which premieres Wednesday, Feb. 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
