Santorum running another race – Daytona 500

Today’s Daytona 500 will have a little bit of political politics on the track as the Rick Santorum campaign has sponsored one of the cars.  He won’t be the only one visible at the track, anti-Romney protestors will be on the sidelines as well.  Sponsoring cars during Daytona has become a recent tradition, beginning in 2004 with Florida Politician Bob Graham tapping the NASCAR fan base.

If you will be at Daytona, you can listen to the #26 Car from Front Row Motorsports Driver 26 Tony Raines frequency 467.8500 Mhz.  You can also get other frequencies for Daytona and the rest of Sprint, Nationwide, and Camping World series at Nascanner.com

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum hopes the car his campaign is sponsoring in the Daytona 500 today can have the same come-from-behind success as his campaign.

The Santorum campaign is sponsoring Front Row Motorsports’ Car #26, a Ford Fusion driven by veteran race car driver Tony Raines, in the premiere stock car event of the season taking place today in Daytona Beach, Florida.

“He was one of the final qualifiers, and I’m so excited,” Santorum told me today on “This Week.”

The car has been wrapped in Santorum’s campaign logo, hoping to draw the attention of NASCAR fans watching the race as Santorum continues to campaign in Michigan before Tuesday’s critical primary.
