Former Cy Young Winner and Two-Time World Series Champ Jake Peavy Shows Off Other Talent at NASCAR Race This Weekend

During the 2007 MLB season, there wasn’t a better pitcher in the National League than Jake Peavy. That year the San Diego Padres hurler posted a 19-6 record with a sparkling 2.54 ERA, earned his second All-Star nomination, and won the Cy Young Award. He last pitched in 2016 but continued to dream of a comeback, officially announcing his retirement in 2019.

This weekend Peavy will once again be in a starring role in front of thousands of fans but in a completely different sport and in a much different capacity. The three-time All-Star pitcher and his band will be performing the national anthem for the NASCAR Cup Series at the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 held at Martinsville Speedway.
