    This one doesn't have any responses yet, but I'll be curious to see if there will be heads exploding or all of a sudden the DUmmies will live NASCAR. :D

    Presidential candidate Obama to sponsor Cup car at Pocono race
    Advertisements [?]Source: SI

    SI.com has learned that for the first time in history, a major presidential candidate may sponsor a race car in NASCAR's premier series.

    According to sources, Barack Obama's campaign is in talks to become the primary sponsor of BAM Racing's No. 49 Sprint Cup car for the Pocono race on August 3. Details of the agreement are expected to be worked out over the coming days.

    A BAM spokesperson has revealed the team will hold a press conference July 23 in Miami to reveal the partnership, currently a proposed one-race deal with an option to continue. Obama will be at the briefing, which will be tied to the "Get Out The Vote" campaign message he spread throughout the 2008 primary season.

    Racing sources claim one of the options being considered would allow individual campaign donors to get their name on the race car for as little as $100.

    1. Just what we need with gas at $4.00 a gallon.
    A presidential candidate wasting hundreds of gallons on drivin' fast and turnin' left.

    The Messiah Obama himself will probably drive it. And win, of course.

    I wonder how Kenny feels about that. I'll have to go to Nascar communities and see. If it were my ride, I'm afraid around lap 6 I'd have to get a "flat" right side tire and put it into the wall hard.

    I don't think the NASCAR audience is who the magic negro wants to "get out the vote". Just a thought.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    Obama Passes on Potential NASCAR Sponsorship.
    Advertisements [?]JOLIET, Ill. - NASCAR's BAM Racing team has presented Barack Obama's presidential campaign with a potential sponsorship deal in the Sprint Cup series later this year, but it doesn't look like an Obama car will be burning rubber on the track anytime soon.

    BO is trying to get more blue collar votes, a logical step if one wishes to be POTUS.

    But it seems DU has fallen back on its old election ideas.
