Tigers ace Justin Verlander loves speed and was drawn to Belle Isle to catch some of the action at the track.
With the Tigers scheduled to face the Yankees Saturday night, Verlander had the opportunity to swing by Belle Isle and meet some drivers and talk to some fans. He purchased his own ticket and was casually walking around the track until he met Belle Isle Grand Prix chairman Bud Denker.
Denker offered Justin a behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities and was ultimately escorted inside the Team Penske paddock.
It pays to be the ace.
