Foxworthy thrilled to sponsor race
Jeff Foxworthy has often used turned to NASCAR for comic fodder.
Now, he’s thrilled to be doing business with the good ol’ boys.
Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 200, a 130-lap truck series race, was held Friday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The comedian and television star calls himself a longtime NASCAR fan and says he’s ”not sure why it took so long to do a deal. I think we probably have the same audience.”
Foxworthy says some of his earliest one-liners in his trademark redneck jokes focused on the stock car series, including ”If you’ve ever put a race car on a prayer list, you might be a redneck.”
As for his sponsorship deal, he says, ”This is a redneck dream come true.”
