Eric Dickerson Named One of the Clash grand marshals

With NASCAR set to descend on Los Angeles this weekend, the sanctioning body announced Monday the first of a group of grand marshals set to kick things off for Sunday’s Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum.

And what bigger way to get things started in the City of Angels than with some of LA’s biggest sports stars?

The first of the group — Eric Dickerson.

A staple of the Los Angeles football scene, the Pro Football Hall of Famer Dickerson played 11 seasons for the LA Rams, Indianapolis Colts, LA Raiders and Atlanta Falcons. In just his second year in the league, Dickerson set the NFL’s single-season rushing record (2,105 yards) while playing for the Rams. He holds the record to this day.
