Ron Paul Racing (an outsider’s perspective)

Apparently, the organizers of Ron Paul Racing have received the “go ahead” to announce their sponsorship intentions. Yates Racing have tentatively allowed the supporters of Ron Paul to sponsor the #28 car at the Daytona 500 in JUST 18 DAYS.

Some have expressed concern about giving money to have the car miss qualifying. When you look at stories like THIS and THIS, some of those concerns should go away. There are many similarities between what Dr. Paul is doing and what Yates Racing is doing. Dr. Paul is fighting an uphill battle to fix the problems in our country and to bring our country back to its glorious status. Doug Yates has recently taken over and is also trying to bring glory back to Yates Racing.

As a NASCAR fan, I can tell you that the fans are very receptive to Dr. Paul’s message. It also brings national media attention to the campaign, possibly international as it is the 50th anniversary of the Daytona 500. The #28 car was the third fastest in testing at the Daytona track. These are things we should attempt to capitalize on.

We helped make donation records. We made a blimp fly. We also helped Dr. Paul place second in Nevada. I’m calling on those same people to help with this cause. I am in no way associated with Ron Paul Racing but I feel this is a wonderful opportunity with a media blackout and a potentially untapped group of voters. Giuliani has been to races and so has “Dub-ya”. Dr. Paul’s message is so much stronger, so, why can’t we?

How much do they need to raise to get RP on the car in the 500?

Go President Paul!

Plain and Simple - This Would be Good Exposure

Whether you like NASCAR or not - face facts - NASCAR is huge. The estimated attendance for the Daytona 500 is over 200,000 and NASCAR is the second most popular professional sport in terms of tv ratings, boasting 75 million fans.

This fact has not been lost on other candidates, in 2004 Bush opened the Daytona 500:

"... there's a guy out there called the 'NASCAR dad' -- lots of them, actually -- whose vote is up for grabs in November.
The NASCAR dad is supposedly a blue-collar, socially conservative white male who would normally vote Republican..."
