Earlier in the week, Tim Tebow’s agent, Jimmy Sexton, said Tebow would not have any other engagements between now and the Feb. 24 NFL Combine in Indianapolis so he could focus on football only and his workouts in Nashville.
Now, however, that game plan has apparently changed.
Tebow will be in Daytona on Thursday to give the start your engines command for the first of two qualifying races for Sunday’s Daytona 500.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will give the command for the second 150-mile race.
Tebow has been working out in Nashville with former NFL quarterback Zeke Bratkowski and former NFL quarterbacks coach Marc Trestman. He is expected to keep Nashville as his training base leading up to the Combine. Tebow is expected to return to Gainesville sometime early in March to prepare for and participate in UF’s Annual Pro Day.
