Glendale, AZ made national news this weekend, not only because the Chicago White Sox started their spring training season at Camelback Ranch Glendale but also because NASCAR's Micheal Waltrip and his team along with drivers David Reautiman, Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Truex joined the White Sox for a little warm-up.
When Chicago White Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen announces “the rednecks are here” you know it’s NASCAR day at Camelback Ranch, the club’s spring-training facility.
Waltrip, wearing Gordon Beckham's No. 15 practice jersey, worked out at first base with Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn. Fellow drivers David Reutimann, who won last year's sprint car race in Chicago, Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Truex also participated in drills.
The event appeared on Sunday's NASCAR Racing Show on Fox and in several newspapers across the country.
