BRISTOL - Rednecks are alive and well, and if you need to find out for yourself, come to Bristol Motor Speedway.

So says smiling Southern standup comedian and television personality Jeff Foxworthy, who was signing autographs, posing for pictures with race fans and promoting his Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips snack food brand that sponsored Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at BMS.

Packs of smart phones — some with camouflage jackets — were all trained on Foxworthy, who has made his livelihood on “You might be a redneck” jokes.

“I love these folks,” Foxworthy said of the crowd outside his display at BMS’ Hospitality Village. “They work hard, but they know how to enjoy their life. The cool thing is you see them with their kids and best friends.
