Alabama’s A.J. McCarron and his girlfriend Katherine Webb were on-hand for the running of the Aaron’s 499 in Talladega this afternoon. McCarron, the quarterback for the two-time defending national champion Crimson Tide, was the honorary pace car driver for the event. McCarron got to drive a crimson-colored Ford Mustang GT, which was specially made for the occasion. He also wore a pretty ridiculous sweater, which you can see below. McCarron’s goal before the race?  “Like Ricky Bobby said, I’m ready to go fast.” A.J. also got to hang out with perennial baseball all-star Chipper Jones and NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. All in all, he had a pretty awesome day. AJ McCarron has just arrived in the pace car- and he was driving. Practice for later? @wvuatv hear from him at 10 twitter.com/ToriSheehan15/… — Victoria Sheehan (@ToriSheehan15) May 5, 2013 Katherine’s pass says HOT. Duh.
