Speed is going to meet speed this weekend, when Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will serve as the Grand Marshal for this Saturday's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach pro/celebrity race.

According to The Press-Telegram, there will be 18 participants from the "celebrity" side of things during the 10-lap race.

Among those celebrities are Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik and actor Robert Patrick who played a role in "Terminator 2."

While they'll be zipping around the track at a good pace, it'll probably be nothing in comparison to what the professional drivers will touch during their laps on Sunday, as they could reach 185 mph through city streets.
