    Saddle Brook UPS Driver is flag bearer in Daytona - Fox Sports

    Good luck came in threes for township resident Robert Hook over the weekend, when he had a string of rare opportunities at the Daytona 500, the most important race on the NASCAR calendar.

    Hook, a 31-year veteran United Parcel Service driver, was selected out of 400,000 company employees to carry the green flag in front of a roaring crowd to signal the start of the annual race, which kicked off NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series.

    He also won a raffle that allowed him to meet David Ragan, who drove a UPS-sponsored car in Sunday's race, and was escorted through the pit to see the mechanics working before the start.
