SHAWN LANGDON TO THROW OUT FIRST PITCH WEDNESDAY AT CARDINALS GAME
NHRA Top Fuel Dragster racer Shawn Langdon will throw out the first pitch at the St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Wednesday evening.
The game is scheduled to start at 6:15 p.m. CDT. Langdon, driver of Kalitta Racing's Global Electronic Technology dragster, then will be joined by the world's biggest names in professional drag racing this weekend at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, for the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals.
Langdon won the 2016 AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals and currently is in 10th place in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series' Countdown to the Championship.
"Coming off of the win last year, it is good to be headed back to Gateway with my Global Electronic Technology team," Langdon said. "It is a great track and with the weather conditions looking pretty cool, it will be a great race. As the defending event champion, you always have a little more confidence rolling into the weekend."
