Butch Jones and Frank Beamer were both in attendance Sunday for the Food City 500 race in Bristol.
The two came together for the second time since October, the other when Tennessee and Virginia Tech announced a 2016 football meeting at the track.
Rain caused two delays lasting more than five hours, with one delay lasting almost two hours. Another rain delay stopped the race for 3 hours, 18 minutes.
When the drivers got back on the track following the final delay, Carl Edwards took home the checkered flag.
