Tatum will take a ride in a custom-built, Honda-powered two-seat Indy car on the track at Barber Motorsports Park, prior to the start of the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, driven by Arie Luyendyk Jr. Tatum is also serving as the grand marshal for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.

Underway for a 9th consecutive year, in 2018, the “Fastest Seat in Sports” will give celebrities and notable influencers an opportunity to experience a Honda-powered two-seat Indy car throughout the racing season with racing legend Mario Andretti and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. taking turns behind the wheel.

Honda Motorsports heads to this weekend’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama coming off a dominant victory by Alexander Rossi for Honda at the 2018 Long Beach Grand Prix, leading 71 of 85 laps and successfully fending off former series champion Will Power after a late-race caution bunched the field.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
