Hide your girlfriends, hide your wives. Justin Hartley is coming to town. 

IMS announced on Wednesday that the NBC star will be the honorary starter of the 2019 Grand Prix on Saturday by waving the green flag. 

“Justin will enjoy the thrill of a lifetime sending a charging pack of NTT IndyCar Series stars toward Turn 1 from the flag stand during the INDYCAR Grand Prix,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles told indianapolismotorspeedway.com. “We’re honored to welcome him to the Speedway, as ‘This Is Us’ is such a widely acclaimed, popular show. His presence is yet another example of the wonderful partnership that’s growing between IMS, INDYCAR and NBC as NBC Sports broadcasts the INDYCAR Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge live for the first time this month.” 

What's the deal, IMS? 

Last year you get Thor, this year Justin Hartley? Give all us regular guys a break. Our significant others are already disappointed enough.
