Rapper Ludacris was at Chicagoland Speedway, where he served as the grand marshal for Saturday’s Furious 7 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race, which was won by Kyle Busch.
"Furious 7," of course, is the hit action/adventure movie that Ludacris appears in, along with Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, the late Paul Walker and Ronda Rousey, among others.

In a radio interview on MRN, Ludacris allowed as how while he enjoyed his Ferrari 458 Italia, his pride and joy was a 1993 Acura Legend that appeared on the cover of his album, "Ludaversal."
The Acura was the first car Ludacris owned, and despite his mega-success — he is estimated to have a net worth of $25 million — it remains the car he drives most often. With about 300,000 miles on the clock, the car has been lovingly restored by Ludacris so it’s like new.
It’s always good to keep first loves going and Ludacris is certainly doing his part.
