NASCAR: Jonah Hill Practices Pocono 400 Command [VIDEO]


This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will hit the Pocono Raceway for the Pocono 400. There are several storylines heading into this weekends race as the series is now halfway to the chase. Among those storylines is Jimmie Johnson and his quest to win a third consecutive race following his wins in Charlotte and Dover. Before the action on the track gets going there will of course have to be “the most famous words in all of Motorsports.”

Sunday at the Pocono 400 those words will be said by actor Jonah Hill. Hill will be on hand promoting his new movie 22 Jump Street which stars him and Channing Tatum. Earlier this week Hill was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where he discussed being at the race and even practiced giving the starting command.

Hill will have some big shoes to fill on Sunday when it comes to celebrities giving the command. Fellow actor Will Ferrell was on hand a couple of years ago to provide the starting command and it was pretty funny. Be sure to check out Hill and all of the other pre-race ceremonies on Sunday prior to the Pocono 400 on TNT.
