Freeze and Stenhouse

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze, a self-proclaimed NASCAR fanatic, and driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr., of Olive Branch, exchanged gifts and pleasantries a few minutes ago.

Stenhouse was on campus for a goodwill tour as NASCAR tries to reach a younger audience with lower ticket prices and other specials.

NASCAR made similar stops last year at Alabama and Auburn with different drivers and will make a stop this year at UAB with driver Jimmie Johnson.
