— Coach Cal is ‘gramming again —
Today, as many of you probably know, is a big day for race fans in the commonwealth. If you venture down I-71, you’ll notice a large line of automobiles of all shapes and sizes waiting to get off the interstate. And if you can see past that sea of vehicles, you’ll notice a packed racetrack full of fun and games for
the whole family those of drinking age. Tonight is the NASCAR Quaker State 400 at the Kentucky Speedway (click for info). And our favorite hoops coach is having a good time there today.
John (and Papa John) took the the ol’ Instagram today to show up what’s up. Coach Cal will be driving the pace car later tonight. Check out his photos above. Here are a couple things to note:
– Papa John continues to show that he knows there’s value in being a UK fan, as well as a UofL supporter. We ain’t mad it, Papa.
– Check out Cal’s jacket. Another genius method for Calipari to preach his mottos: “Refuse to Lose” and “Players First” are important phrases to kids these days. Unfortunatey, I don’t think many top recruits watch NASCAR, though.
– And as always, Cal took time to sign autographs because he’s awesome.
UPDATE: Looks like they are evacuating the speedway due to weather. Be careful out there, racefans.
@kyspeedway fans are being evacuated from the stands due to storms, heavy rain and lightning. They are asking fans to take precaution.
