Three weeks ago I noted that Sunday’s NASCAR Aaron Rents 499 at Talladega would feature Michael Waltrip driving an Auburn-themed entry. The AU paint-schemed car was part of a Talladega salute to the BCS Champion Auburn football team.
Also present for the festivities yesterday was Auburn football coach Gene Chizik, who served as the race’s Grand Marshal.
So how’d NASCAR fans react when Chizik was introduced before the race?
Hint: The pre-race invocation was punctuated by a “roll tide!”
