KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES: COWBOYS GREAT "TOO TALL" MEETS INDYCAR'S "TOO FAST"
Having grown up in Dubai, Verizon IndyCar Series driver Ed Jones wasn’t familiar with American football.
It wasn’t until he moved to Indianapolis to compete in the series and his fellow competitors were jokingly calling him “Too Tall” that he began familiarizing himself with the National Football League … and his namesake that starred for the Dallas Cowboys.
On Thursday at The Speedway Club at Texas Motor Speedway, “Too Fast” Jones of Chip Ganassi Racing met Super Bowl champion and three-time All-Pro defensive end Ed “Too Tall” Jones for a media luncheon and learn a little bit more about the other Ed Jones. Four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon, Jones’ teammate, also took part in the luncheon as well.
Texas Motor Speedway had the Joneses participate in an entertaining, rapid-fire word association game featuring terms in football, racing and ones that crossed over to both.
“Too Tall” will return to Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday evening as a guest of “Too Fast,” NTT Data and Chip Ganassi Racing for the DXC Technology 600. The Joneses will partake in a press conference in the infield media center deadline room at 6:15 p.m. CT and then pre-race introductions beginning at 7:01 p.m.
“Too Tall” will watch “Too Fast” take the green flag in his No. 10 NTT Data Honda for the DXC Technology 600 at 7:45 p.m. from atop the team’s pit box.
