Roseanne is hitting airwaves with style.

Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity race in California will officially be titled the “Roseanne 300” after the iconic sitcom set to reboot on March 27, Fox News reports.

The Xfinity series is NASCAR’s second-tier, where rising stars compete and some top drivers practice for their regular races.

According to Business Insider, “Roseanne 300” logos will appear throughout the event, including on the track, in the victory lane, and on the pace car.

It’s not known whether Roseanne Barr herself will be at the event, but Michael Fishman, who plays DJ, will serve as grand marshal, giving drivers the command to start their engines.

An appearance by Barr would bring to mind her famous rendition of the national anthem at a 1990 San Diego Padres game, notable for arguably being worse than Fergie’s derided performance at last month’s NBA All-Star game.

Previous shows to have bought the naming rights to NASCAR races include “Top Gear,” “Duck Dynasty,” and “Spongebob Squarepants.”

The “Roseanne 300,” held at California’s Auto Club Speedway, will air Saturday at 5 pm on Fox Sports 1. Ironically, the race will promote the program of rival network ABC.

The nine-episode “Roseanne” revival will bring together the series’ original cast, the first time they have been together onscreen since the series ended in 1997.
