The Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced on Tuesday that acclaimed actors, Austin Butler and Jodie Comer, the stars of The Bikeriders will wave the green flag to signal the start of the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday.

The news comes just one day after it was confirmed that Ken Griffey Jr will serve as the honorary Pace Car driver for the Greatest Spectacle In Racing.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J Douglas Boles said:

Austin and Jodie star in a movie focused on two wheels, but they’re about to experience the exhilaration of 33 of the fastest cars on four wheels as they stand atop the flag stand and wave the green flag to officially start the world’s greatest race. “This is one of the most powerful and exciting moments in all of sports.”
