This year’s BCS National Championship game has ties to two of NASCAR’s biggest tracks and the respective presidents of those tracks are not letting that fact go unnoticed it was announced Tuesday. When The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame take on Alabama’s Crimson Tide on January 7, Chicagoland’s President Scott Paddock and Talladega Superspeedway’s Chairman Grant Lynch will be playing closer attention than some.
The presidents have agreed to have the loser buy lunch for the entire staff of the winning track and will have to pose for a video in the winning team’s colors.
Scott Paddock, who played basketball for Notre Dame, has placed his bet on his Alma Mater, while Grant Lynch will be betting on Alabama—his team’s biggest rival.
“Although I am usually a diehard Auburn Tigers fan, when the SEC is represented in the National Championship I throw my support behind the conference,” said Grant Lynch. “You won’t hear me say this often, but for the sake of the bet, ‘ROLL TIDE!’” MORE>>>
