NASCAR Daytona 500 RON PAUL CAR
They've got a car, they've got a chip-in. Gentleman, start your engines! You may not be one of the millions of NASCAR fans but you cannot deny that this is a great idea.

The Daytona 500 is the SuperBowl of racing and is for sure an instant way to get millions of people to Google Ron Paul. This sport particularly popular with southern states and is spreading like crazy. This is the perfect target for the message of the 2nd Admendment, get government out of your pocket, and get back your freedoms.

In my opinion, this could do better for RP than the blimp and debates combined. We need to get behind this! No TV or radio ad would compare to the exposure he would get.

The car they have has been testing as the fourth fastest! It's a great car! Could you imagine that a win at Daytona could very well bring us a win in the nomination.

Re: NASCAR Daytona 500 RON PAUL CAR
Ron Paul Racing Lands a Car!
After exiting conversation’s with Doug Yates Racing, we have secured permission to announce our sponsor intentions. Not just any car but the legendary #28 making its historic return to the track since it was retired shortly after the passing of NASCAR great Davey Allison in 1993. Imagine the coverage this team is going to get for Ron Paul.

Doug Yates Racing, with 48 poles, 57 wins including two Daytona 500s and a Championship, is no stranger to winning. The #28 car also posted the 4th fastest time in Daytona’s preseason test earlier this month. Imagine the coverage this car will get for its history alone. Now imagine it covered with Ron Paul. This would be the first time a NASCAR racecar was sponsored by "We the People", the fans, the Ron Paul Revolution.

However, depending on our commitment we will need to collect $50K to 400k in the next 2 weeks. Considering we (the grassroots supporters) have collected 6.5 million in 24 hours, WE CAN DO THIS! But we need everyone’s help. Please copy this hyperlink-logo and post it everywhere. Add www.ronpaulracing.com to your email signature and most of all donate today.

Over the next few days we will be updating the site with various Ron Paul endorsements throughout the racing community as well as Ron Paul Racing fan gear and details about how you can be there with us in person for the dropping of the green flag. But only if we meet our goal. The plans have been set; the ball is rolling; now it’s up to us all to make this happen.

Thank you,

Scanner Scott

Re: NASCAR Daytona 500 RON PAUL CAR
The Daytona 500 is a 200-lap, 500 mile (805 km) NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race held annually at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. It is one of four restrictor plate races on the Cup schedule. In 2008, the race will celebrate its 50th running.

The Daytona 500 is regarded by many as the most important and prestigious race on the NASCAR calendar, carrying by far the largest purse. Championship points awarded are equal to that of any other Sprint Cup race. It is also NASCAR's first race of the year; this phenomenon is virtually unique in sports, which tend to have championships or other major events at the end of the season rather than the start. Since 1995, U.S. television ratings for the Daytona 500 have been the highest for any auto race of the year, surpassing the traditional leader, the Indianapolis 500. The 2006 Daytona 500 attracted the sixth largest average live global TV audience of any sporting event that year with 20 million viewers.[1]

The event serves as the final event of Speedweeks and is known as "The Great American Race" and the "Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing." It is held the third or second Sunday in February, and since 1971, has been loosely associated with Presidents Day weekend.

The winner of the Daytona 500 is presented with the Harley J. Earl Trophy in Victory Lane, and the winning car is displayed, in race-winning condition, for one year at Daytona 500 Experience, a museum and gallery adjacent to Daytona International Speedway

Celeb attention to this race...

2008 Race: The 50th Running
Main article: 2008 Daytona 500
The 2008 Daytona 500 will mark the 50th running of "The Great American Race", and is scheduled to be run on Sunday, February 17, 2008, celebrating the Golden Anniversary of the first race run in 1959, won by Lee Petty. The Harley J. Earl Trophy, which goes to the winner of the race, will be plated in gold instead of silver to commemorate this event. The race is scheduled to be the first Daytona 500 run using NASCAR's Car of Tomorrow, which was introduced in 2007, and become standard as of 2008.

Daytona 500 winners Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson and Mario Andretti, sitcom star Jason Lee, TV host Kelly Ripa, and action sport legend Tony Hawk among others, put their artistic talents to the test to help commemorate the 50th running of NASCAR’s crown jewel stock car race. Daytona International Speedway's “Celebrity Tickets for Charity” competition, where the design of the most sought-after ticket in motorsports history was chosen from submissions provided by celebrities, with fans having a voice in the decision. Those fans chose ten designs - four from past race winners - and a blue ribbon panel made up of NASCAR's family selected comedian/game show host Jeff Foxworthy's design as the winner.

From the same site from my last post...

"Drivers resonate with fans, allowing sponsors to tap into the NASCAR fans' legendary brand loyalty."

So not only will it been seen by millions, but this crowd reacts. We will get people checking him out and this is definatly the crowd that we need to see this message.

I liked Thompson. I also like most of what Ron Paul says.

Now that Thompson and Tancredo are out, Ron is definitely my first choice.

Tony Stewart, even though I don't like him, has a dirt track here in Ohio....plus NASCAR races in California also.

Found this on the blog for the racing site.....WHO'S YOUR DADDY?!?!?!?!?!

[link to blog.ronpaulracing.com]

We have made contact with Don Garlits people early this week by a few of the connected folks. Maybe we could lend a little support to get Big Daddy on board with us by sending polite e-mails saying why he should give us a hand. He knows Dr Paul very well (over 20 years) so we need not explain that part only our mission to place a sponsorship on a Daytona Car. Mr Garlits help would be very important to the cause.

Re: NASCAR Daytona 500 RON PAUL CAR
As a nascar fan myself i think this is an excellent idea if they don't make any last minute decision to not let it happened. How about they fly the RP blimp around during the race too. When you attend them races you can still see pretty good distance away, so they got a large area to advertise in with that blimp. You know all them fans will look up at it.
