Zack Morris has the honors ahead of Hollywood Casino 400 RELATED: @nascarcasm on how NASCAR, 'Saved By The Bell' are alike Kansas Speedway has announced its grand marshal for the Hollywood Casino 400 , and -- Hey, hey, hey, what is going on here? Zack Morris, straight from Bayside High, will utter the most famous words in racing on Oct. 18. Oh, Preppy! via GIPHY OK, we get that it's not actually Zack Morris -- it's actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar, and he's done much more than just "Saved by the Bell." Still, who doesn't remember him as the fun-loving, trouble-making high schooler? We only hope he brings Kelly Kapowski with him. We're also glad he can no longer be confused with Jamie McMurray .
Singer details his relationship with Kevin Harvick for NASCAR.com Editor's note: Country music star Jake Owen has played at NASCAR races and is a client at KHI Management. The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion recently made an appearance in the music video for Owen's latest single, "Real Life." Learn more about Jake by clicking here and follow Jake on Twitter here . See below for a behind-the-scenes video of "Real Life." I've always enjoyed NASCAR and have always been a fan of the sport. I definitely became more involved once Kevin Harvick and I started working together. The last several years, watching how well he's done, has been incredible. To have the changes he did, not just in racing but in life, to go out and win the championship and join a new team and really start his own company when he had a new baby -- he's done so much stuff and has been so successful. He and his wife DeLana enjoyed my music, and four years ago they asked me to perform at a charity event for him, and I did. It was right about time they found out they were going to have a baby. I was going to be a dad as well, so we were going through the same things at the same time. We became friends, and it made sense for us to team up. Another reason it's been so great to work with him is that I think country music and NASCAR go together like peanut butter and jelly. The same folks who watch a NASCAR every race weekend are the same folks who come out to our shows and sing with us. Country music is fueled by people who live real lives, who are just everyday, good people. Both are very loyal. Our fans support us our whole careers. Same with NASCAR -- if there's a Dale Earnhardt fan or a Junior fan, they are lifelong fans. I just love that. When you talk about a NASCAR driver moving up and a country music singer making it big, I think they correlate a lot. Kevin and I really do get along and understand and have a similar background. I have good family, but I didn't have anything handed to me. I dropped out of college and moved to Nashville. My dad said, 'Good luck.' I worked really hard and built a little following, playing county fairs and festivals and backyard barbecues. I played everywhere I could. Now to be out playing stadiums with guys like Kenny Chesney, and to headline my own arenas, is amazing. When I go back to the city where that county fair was 10 years ago, it's so flattering that people will lay down money they’ve worked hard for to see my show. There's nothing more fulfilling to know after all the hard work, you make it -- call it going from dirt tracks to Daytona. I ended up asking Kevin to be in my new music video and told him, "I just want you to celebrate in the back of truck like you won a race, spraying everyone with champagne." Kevin was like, "I'm totally down with that." The song is called "Real Life," and it's about anything that happens on a daily basis that's out of our control, in our control, just things that happen every day. Really, it's about living it and treating others with respect. It's about being what I call a good all-American human being. We all have high moments and low. The guy who brings his camper out to race on Sunday, there's a chance he gets a flat tire. It's hot, kids are yelling in the background … those situations to me are what real life is all about -- living life to your best and fullest and smiling along the way.

Presenting NASCAR content from around the web Editor's note: On Wednesday at noon ET, "High 5" will present some of the best NASCAR-related content from around the web. 1. Water, water everywhere ... Well, at least a little bit, according to NASA, which reported on Monday that it had found signs of liquid water on Mars. Water! Strong evidence that liquid water flows on present-day Mars. Details: http://t.co/0MW11SANwL #MarsAnnouncement pic.twitter.com/JNksawz2iN — NASA (@NASA) September 28, 2015 Scientists are pointing to streaks called recurrent slope linaes, which have been spotted extensively on the planet. This is huge news in the scientific community, as water presence suggests an environment that could support human life. Awesome! But if only science were a give-and-take situation -- we could have solved this a while ago. Mars, you give us awesome aliens, we give you rain water that's probably still "weeping" at Kentucky Speedway from July. 2. Flying tempers Forget fly balls --- tempers were the ones flying in Sunday's Nationals-Phillies game. Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon didn't care for teammate Bryce Harper's lack of a hard run after a fly ball. And when Harper hit the dugout, Papelbon let him have it. Jonathan Papelbon attacking Bryce Harper?

Brian Scott , unhappy with Darrell Wallace Jr . post-race, approached the No. 6 car and stuck his head in to ... have a chat? We'll let you all make that call. RELATED: Scott, Bubba get physical post-race at Kentucky 3. Divine intervention? Pope Francis is a powerful individual. So powerful that Philadelphia Eagles' head coach Chip Kelly credited Francis with the Eagles' win over the New York Jets on Sunday -- shortly after the Pope landed in Philadelphia. The Eagles were 0-2 before the matchup. "That the Pope helped us? That's 100 percent true," Kelly said jokingly on Sports Radio 94 WIP Monday. "If you watched what we did in the second half, we were trying to get the game over quicker so we could come back and see him." The Eagles aren't the only team that has been looking for a miracle as of late. Both Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer likely need a win to advance to the next round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup . RELATED: Chase Bubble Watch after New Hampshire Well, one of them could win this week at Dover to nab a spot -- the other one just needs a visit from Pope Francis, right? 4. Gym rats The Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James may have gotten a bit crazy with his workout schedule in the off-season. The 6-foot-8, 250-pound forward told reporters during the team's media day on Monday that he had been doing "three-a-days five days a week" in preparation for the season. If each workout spanned two hours each, that would mean King James spends a quarter of each workout day pumping iron. Jimmie, you better step it up. Oh wait, guess you did with a 100-mile bike right FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY. I don't know about you guys, but I celebrate my birthday by eating cake, not riding bikes. But hey, you do you, JJ -- guess you're called "Six-Time" for a reason. 5. Head-butting Brad Keselowski wasn't the only athlete to disagree with an official this weekend. RELATED: Mixed reviews for Keselowski's restart penalty Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton disagreed with veteran NFL referee Ed Hochuli's non-call of an alleged late hit on the quarterback during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Despite winning the game 27-22, Newton is still upset over the call, saying Hochuli told him he was "not old enough to get that call." "I didn't think you had to have seniority to get a personal foul or anything like that," Newton said after the game. According to the NFL Network, Hochuli denied saying that to Newton, but if Newton's allegations turn out to be true, Hochuli could be eventually reprimanded. Uh oh.
