Bright yellow vehicle enthusiast and spiky haired kulinary gremlin Guy Fieri's greatest dream has just come true. For one day, Fieri is trading in his Donkey Sauce for a race car. According to a press release, the evangelist of flame decals will serve as the Grand Marshal and Honorary Pace Car driver for the Nascar Sprint All-Star Race, which takes place May 16. The race is apparently the "biggest all-star event in sports."

The press release promises that Fieri "will bring his larger-than-life personality and his signature blonde hair" to the race, which is entering its 30th year. In his role as Grand Marshal he will "give the command to fire engines," before hoping into the pace car. So what model will the kraft kocktail maker be driving? A Hummer? A yellow Lamborghini? Nope. Fieri will jump behind the wheel of the official Charlotte Motor Speedway Toyota Camry. There is no word on whether or not the Camry will be in Fieri's signature color. Regardless, Fieri is pumped: He tweeted in response to the news, "Yeahhh! Can't wait!!" After all, nothing screams "I'm so excited" like three exclamation points.
