Tebow: Start your engines!


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.


  1. His agents can allow him to take time off for the Daytona 500, but would not allow him to speak at a fundraiser for a school for disabled children, nor would they allow him to sign any memorabilia for us to put in the auction to try and raise money. We have been trying to get him as the key speaker for over a year now…. Sad…..

  2. Look thanks to the press and every other know it all, Tebows’ fate has probably already been sealed. Why does anybody care how much fun he has before the combine. Let him enjoy the acolades bestowed upon him and reap the rewards he has so rightly deserves. I would love to experience the things has. Let’s thank him for the memories and wish him luck in the future. And to the rest of you…”Go Gators!”

  3. Tim Tebow is being pulled back & forth by everyone
    with an agenda. Relax, and give the guy a break!
    Enough already. Give him some space to let him
    prove himself in the pros. Then you can project
    yourself & your own pet issue onto his career.
    There will be plenty of time for that. Agreed?
    Later Gators,
