Buffalo Bill's Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas to be the Official Starter of the Sahlen's 6 Hours of the Glen

New York Race Fans at this year's Sahlen's 6 Hours may see a familiar face from Sunday's gone by, waving the Green Flag. Bill's Hall of Famer Running Back Thurman Thomas will be the official Starter of this years's Sahlen's event.

Beyond waving the Green Flag for the start of the Sahlen's 6 Hours, Thomas will be involved in several activities during the weekend. Thurman will attend the Saturday Meeting for ROLEX DP and GT Drivers. Then at the end of the race, he will be assisting in handing out the trophy's to the race winners. And Thurman will be in attendance to help judge the Saturday evening Sahlen Hot Dog Eating Contest.

"Everyone at Sahlen's is honored to have Thurman as our Official Starter for the Sahlen's 6 Hours. Having been a life long Bills fan, it is very exciting to have Thurman waving the Green Flat for the race we are sponsoring. We have been a long time season ticket holder and have been the Official Hot Dog of the Bills for several years." - states Joe Sahlen

Joe Sahlen will also be a very active participant in the weekend's activities. Beyond serving as the official sponsor for the event, Joe will be co-driving the #42 Team Sahlen Corvette with Will Nonnamaker in the 6 hour event. (www.teamsahlen.com)
