Bear Bryant will be riding along at Talladega Superspeedway this weekend | al.com
Legendary Alabama football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant will be riding along this Sunday in the No. 15 Toyota of Clint Bowyer at Talladega Superspeedway.
Bryant's image has been painted onto the back of the helmet that Bowyer will wear this weekend. It goes along with the paint scheme for the car, which honors the Crimson Tide's BCS national championship.
"It was actually my idea about the helmet," said Bowyer.
This gives a whole new meaning to Roll Tide, doesn't it? This is gumping on a totally different plane. I mean, a completely different dimension of time and space.
Old school Bama fans will get the "bonnet" reference in the headline.
