Due to his announced appearance at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view (he will be part of the pre-show expert panel) Ric Flair will not appear as the Grand Marshall at Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele, GA this weekend. Flair issued the following statement…

"To the fans, crew and drivers, I profusely apologize that I won't be able to be at the race, but hope everyone still heads out to Watermelon Capital Speedway this weekend to support my buddy David Ragan at Zaxby's SpeedFest 2014."
