Sarah Palin To Make VIP Appearance At Daytona 500

Palin to make VIP appearance at Daytona 500

The Washington Post


Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be a VIP guest at next month's Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway president Robin Braig says Palin will make her first appearance at NASCAR's most storied track the day before she serves as guest speaker at the city's annual chamber of commerce dinner.

Palin won't have any official role in the Daytona 500, but the former Alaska governor will be introduced at the pre-race drivers meeting along with other celebrities.

Braig says track officials checked with NASCAR's political advisers before signing off on Palin's visit. Braig says the reaction was to "showcase her just as much as we would our mayor, our governor or our senators."


Wild Thing's comment......

I wonder if they will let her drive the pace car.

This is OUTSTANDING! You betcha! Now, picture Obama doing the same thing.........I thought so. LOL

While I'm not a Nascar fan (I prefer Indy races),this would be one to watch just because Sarah's there. She is truly a shining star.

Difficult to find a more conservative crowd than a NASCAR crowd. Sara will get a big ovation. President Bush made an appearance at a NASCAR race several years ago and the crowd cheered wildly.

NASCAR started by running 'bootleg' whiskey. And is as American as apple pie. In the 60's it became legitmate and you had the Big 3 auto makers competing with engines and cars. At that time you could buy a 'Short block' direct from the factory.

This is a great event for Sarah Palin, and they will make her feel right at home.

During the Season, here in Podunk Pennsylvania the local radio station preempts all programing when there's a race.

And I'll be home to watch the race this year.
Let me be the first to predict the winner. #42, Juan Pablo Montoya. (I hope he's not a Democrat)

He wouldn't show his face around "Us"! We "drive trucks", and that is below him, as he so stated about Scott Brown, (giving my online shop big sales even today), because Scott has chosen to not ride around in a Limo.
And Thanks also Wild Thing, for exposing us to the beautiful songstress that is Ayla Brown.

Pace car??
Obama would wet his panties just hearing a NASCAR stocker start!

Lynn, I agree she really is.

Tom, oh yess thank you for mentioning about
Bush. I had forgotten about that. It was great when he did that it was so neat.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2010 01:43 AM

Mark, thank you for sharing about that.
I agree too, Sarah will be treated really
well there.

Jack, LMAO good one!

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2010 01:47 AM

Jim, what fun, that is great you will be home for this.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2010 01:52 AM

Frankly, LOL yes, I have completely decided
that Obama doesn't have one single macho thing
about him. YUK! Not only is he a marxist but he is unmanly.

Thank you Frankly for all you do and for the awesome T-shirts and logos too!!!!

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2010 01:56 AM

Rick, LOL hahaha he sure would.

"Now, picture Obama doing the same thing" He wouldn’t know how to react. And would probably start to ask people if they have seen the price of arugula at Whole Foods.
