Tebow tours Daytona, dodges commercial questions

By  | 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow
is getting another tour of Daytona International Speedway.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner is talking to drivers, checking
out cars and turning a few laps around NASCAR's famed track. He
also is signing autographs and posing for pictures. It's all part
of his role as grand marshal for the Daytona 500 qualifying races

The races are sponsored by Gatorade, and Tebow recently signed
with the sports drink giant.

Tebow declined to talk about his Super Bowl commercial, the one
paid for by the Christian group Focus on the Family. He also didn't
want to address any football questions. He did, though, joke that
he is hoping to get less criticism about his "Gentlemen, Start
Your Engines" line than his football delivery.
