‘Wheel of Fortune’ fans can meet longtime co-host Vanna White at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday.
White is scheduled to appear from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday beside the North Carolina Education Lottery’s booth at the speedway’s Fan Zone, according to a news release Tuesday by the lottery.
White is serving as grand marshal of the NCEL 200 NASCAR truck series race that night.
The North Myrtle Beach native will greet NASCAR drivers during their pre-race introductions and then start the race by saying the traditional, ‘Drivers. Start your engines.” The race is scheduled to begin at 6:05 p.m.
White’s appearance is timed with the lottery having introduced a “Wheel of Fortune” scratch-off game on Tuesday — the third time the lottery has offered the game.
The $5 game has more than $13 million in prizes, including four top prizes of $200,000, according to the lottery news release. Players also can win “VIP trips” to Los Angeles, where they vie for a $1 million prize, officials said.
