It isn’t taking long for new Tennessee head football coach Butch Jones to endear himself to the Volunteer State.  Sunday, he was the Grand Marshal for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Jones says he hopes his involvement with NASCAR isn’t just for one race.

“I’m hooked,” said Butch Jones.  “I’m officially a fan and I’ll tell you what, just seeing the operation, the passion, the intensity and I’ll tell you what it’s been a great experience and I’m looking forward to coming back for many more.”
