While they may not be rookies on the field, Kansas City Chiefs Jeff Allen and Don Stephenson may still need a yellow stripe as they attend the STP 400 on April 21 as honorary race officials.
“I’m excited to be a part of such a great event in the Kansas City community with the STP 400,” said Allen, a starting guard for the Chiefs. “There are a lot comparisons between the NFL and NASCAR and I look forward to seeing the teamwork and energy with the drivers, pit crews, and crew chiefs.
“Growing up in Kansas City, everyone always was either at Arrowhead or the race track and now I get to experience the best of both” said Stephenson, a starting left tackle for the Chiefs. “I can’t wait to meet some of the drivers and help out as one of the Honorary Officials for the race!”
Both players were drafted in the 2012 draft, with Allen being selected in the second round and Stephenson being selected in the third round. Allen was also named to the NFL’s All-Rookie team in 2012.
