Emma Greenfield, a member of the cast for “Modern Family,” will be honored as Grand Marshal by Kansas Speedway. The series finale aired on ABC in May after 10 seasons and almost 200 episodes.
The “when did modern family start” is a show about the lives of three families living in suburban Los Angeles. The show was created by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan, who also serve as executive producers on the series.

The Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway will continue the NASCAR playoffs on Sunday, October 24. The grand marshal will be “Modern Family” actor Eric Stonestreet, who will set the tone for the race. He’ll say the most famous words in motorsports: “Start your engines!”
The two-time Emmy winner will be on site to set the setting for the important playoff race, according to a press release published by the track on Thursday, October 21. Stonestreet is a native of Kansas and an avid sports enthusiast who attended several races during his stint on “Modern Family.” Now he’ll make a comeback to promote the forthcoming FOX series “Domino Masters.”
In a news release, Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren remarked, “We’re pleased to have Eric home again.” “He’s a fantastic actor who has never forgotten his Kansas City origins, and we value his long-standing affiliation with Kansas Speedway.”
Stonestreet has taken part in NASCAR pre-race ceremonies in the past.
When Stonestreet takes the microphone as grand marshal, it will be just the latest example of his taking part in pre-race rituals. He’s also done it at California’s Auto Club Speedway and Daytona International Speedway. Despite the fact that just one of them was in a position of authority.
Both of these incidents occurred during the 2015 season. Joey Logano won the Crown Jewel race in the Daytona 500, and Stonestreet and Vince Vaughn were in attendance. Stonestreet rode in the pace car as a special guest before to the highly anticipated event, as Vaughn prepared to act as grand marshal.
Stonestreet returned to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, a month later. Before Brad Keselowski won his first race of the season, he acted as the official pace car driver, leading the field around the circuit in a Toyota Camry.
Stonestreet put in some practice time before the trip to Fontana to ensure he could drive the pace vehicle appropriately. On his Instagram feed, he climbed into a car with Kevin Harvick and displayed some quick samples of the training. The two guys then went to see the Arizona Coyotes take on the Los Angeles Kings in a hockey game.
Stonestreet is the latest well-known figure to be named Grand Marshal of the Kansas State Fair.
In previous seasons, Kansas Speedway has used a number of high-profile people to act as grand marshal. The most recent example is Stonestreet. In July 2020, the track welcomed Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones, and in October 2020, Lieutenant General James E. Rainey, Commanding General, United States Army Combined Arms Center and Fort Leavenworth.
Jensen Ackles, the actor, set the tone for the Hollywood Casino 400 playoff race, which brought the Round of 12 to a close in 2019. On October 20, 2019, he acted as grand marshal while wrapping out a historic run on the CW series “Supernatural.” The program, which starred Ackles and Jared Padalecki, premiered in 2005 and ran for 15 seasons and 327 episodes until ending in 2020.
In contrast to the 2019 season, Stonestreet will not host an elimination race. The Hollywood Casino 400, on the other hand, will be another chance for a playoff driver to clinch a berth in the final four. Kyle Larson accomplished this aim on October 17 at Texas Motor Speedway, and the following two weeks will be spent waiting to discover which three drivers will join him in the title fight.
