DON SHULA NAMED GRAND MARSHAL FOR MARLBORO GRAND PRIX OF MIAMI

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (March 17, 1999) - Don Shula will give the command to fire up racing's fastest cars for the Marlboro Grand Prix of Miami Presented by Toyota, on Sunday, March 21 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Michael Andretti will aim for his third consecutive victory against the stars of the CART FedEx Championship Series in the 200-mile event, which joins Saturday's Florida Dodge Dealers 400 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race in an action-packed weekend of racing in South Florida. The winningest coach in the history of the National Football League, Shula was unanimously elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1997, his first year of eligibility. He compiled a 347-173-6 record in 33 years as head coach of the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Colts, leading his division 19 times. He coached in six Super Bowls, winning titles in 1972 and 1973 for the Miami Dolphins. His 17-0 team in 1972 remains the lone undefeated team in the history of the NFL. The excitement begins Friday with NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series practice and Bud Pole qualifying and CART FedEx Series practice. Tickets are $10. Unreserved tickets for Saturday's Florida Dodge Dealers 400 and CART FedEx Series practice and qualifying cost $25. Tickets for Sunday's Marlboro Grand Prix of Miami Presented by Toyota begin at $55, and will be available at the gate.
