Phoenix native and Arizona State University NCAA wrestling champion Anthony Robles - who was born without his right leg - can add another title to his long list of honors.

Robles has been named Honorary Race Official for the Kobalt Tools 500 at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday, and will help rev up the crowd for the NASCAR weekend's signature event on Nov. 13.

Robles began his wrestling career at a young age and battled through defeat before finishing his junior and senior years at Mesa High School with a 96-0 record and a high school national championship title. Robles entered ASU as a redshirt freshman and went on to compile a 122-23 record and capture the three Pac-10 titles, a 2011 NCAA title and national tournament's Best Wrestler Award.
