Indianapolis, Indiana – The grand marshal for the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 will be a former Disney star.

Dylan Sprouse will be the grand marshal for the event on Sunday, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced on Friday. Sprouse will walk the Indy 500 red carpet and issue the customary order for drivers to report to their cars during the formal pre-race formalities.

This comes after Sprouse appeared in the Indiana-shot movie “The Duel,” which was helmed by Justin Matthews and Luke Spencer Roberts. Anticipated for summer release, the movie centers on two friends who resolve their disputes through a traditional duel.

“Dylan’s film ‘The Duel’ was partially filmed in the Hoosier State making him an ideal grand marshal for the Indy 500,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said in the release. “The energy and excitement Dylan brings to his on-screen roles will be evident to both spectators at the track and everyone watching on NBC and Peacock as he commands drivers to their cars.”

Alongside his brother Cole Sprouse, Sprouse is most known for his part in the Disney television series “Suite Life.” Additionally, the two acted alongside Adam Sandler in the 1999 film “Big Daddy.”

According to officials, Dylan Sprose’s wife, Victoria Secret supermodel Barbara Palvin Sprouse, and the other members of “The Duel” cast will also be present at the event.
