ESPN signs Gretchen Wilson to promote NASCAR broadcasts

UNDATED (AP) - Gretchen Wilson says as a kid her uncle used to let her clean the mud out of the wheel wells with a two-by-four after he drove dirt tracks outside St. Louis. She says she felt like she was part of the pit crew and has been a NASCAR fan ever since. Wilson will be featured in ESPN's NASCAR coverage beginning with the September 15 event at Chicagoland Speedway. Wilson will narrate and appear in the opening segments, with each one tailored to that week's racetrack. Her music will also be used.
