Reds fans, start your engines

The Reds waved the checkered flag on Monday to welcome NASCAR legends Richard Petty, Bobby Labonte and Aric Almirola for “Reds Racing Night” at Great American Ball Park.

The largest collection of racing show cars, simulators and interactives in the Ohio/Kentucky area was on display in the Reds Fan Zone at GABP.

Prior to the first pitch, Labonte signed autographs while Petty and Almirola conducted a Q&A with fans. The pair capped pregame festivities with a pit stop on the mound to throw out ceremonial first pitches.
