Democrats canceled a political convention kick-off event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and will move the activities to Charlotte’s main business district, the convention’s host committee announced.

“While we regret having to move CarolinaFest away from our great partners at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and the City of Concord, we are thrilled with the opportunity that comes with hosting this event in Uptown Charlotte,” said Dan Murrey, the executive director of the Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee.

    I guess those left wing libs don’t really want to hang out with red necked, 2nd ammendment believers, flag waving, people who believe in God and country.

      They claimed that the decision was because of “Logistics.” But the logistics were what they are NOW, when they thought of this! They realized that they were wading into alligator infested waters, but it would have been so nice to see the great one booed as was his wife!

    I wish All democrats would cancel themselves out and go away completely.

    They are concerned that they will be booed and rightly so! Almost all NASCAR fans believe in personal responsibility and hard work as well as being very patriotic. The Democrats led by Obama are hardly that now. They were just looking to see if they could fool us into supporting them. We can see a wolf in sheep’s clothing and are not falling for it.

    Thank God!  Nothing like a socialist to screw up a nascar track!!!  They know that most of nascar fans hate them, so they figure their useless gesture will win them some support.  NOT!!!!    Stay away from racing you socialists, you know you hate it!!!  Get rid of that ethenol crap its screwing up every gas driven engine I have!!!!  nascar, stop suckin up to commie obami, just because you got a tax break in the so-called (failed) stimulus!!!!!

    Didn’t Obama’s Amazonian wife and biden’s troll get booed the last time they tried to infiltrate our NASCAR? Like the lyrics of a Lynard Skynard song ( A Southern Man Don’t Need Them Around Anyhow) .

    Knowing how the vast majority of we race fans are…and I’ve been involved since 1948…there is no way this charlatan in the White House will ever be respected and ,hopefully, re-elected by Americans with a scintilla of good sense.
    The real concern would be how duped his base is and most other democrats will try to vote him in by “hook or (mostly) crook”.  There’s a special segment of the country who still won’t bypass him because “he’s da man what represents us afta all dat reee-pression we done had,” and who “sho’ do want dat welfare check to keep on comin’”…and that’s the real problem.
    I said he would be ga terrible president…and I know I just don’t want to be anywhere near Charlotte during the Obama Convention…

    We don’t need the Democrats at the Speedway, if they had their way, they woud stop all Nascar Racing.

  • Mike Leanord

    Thank God.  The libs would first stop any prayer.  Then they would make sure that there was a homosexual driver in a pink car, then they would make sure that the taxpayer provided free tickets for all the no-accounts and illegal aliens who can’t afford one (spent all their money on buying those fake IDs so they could vote for Barry)

    Who wants them anyway!

  • Lmmulkey

    great news for NASCAR fans

  • Speedy7201

    Great, IF they had, I would have NEVER went to another NASCAR race. At the same time, screw NASCAR b/c they would have accepted him… Is money that bad that they would have accepted the bucks from this idiot?  If they are. then you don’t need my money anyway….
    NASCAR, shame on you… Unlike the visit of Reagan, this IDIOT would NOT have helped our sport. You seem to be making the same idiotic decisions that Obama is w/o looking out past next week and WHO you will offend…
    SAD day for NASCAR and those that follow it week in and week out. Have YOU ever considered that they did this intentionally just o hurt NASCAR and th fan base and YOU idiots fell for it?

      Nascar has tickets waiting at New Hampshire for the Obamas.  If they do go it might be fun to watch them squirm at the invocation, national anthem, flyover etc.  They probably will have an excuse not to attend, but they are probably afraid of the booing they would get.  Reagan had no such problem.  NASCAR fans loved to hear him say “Gentleman, start your engines”.  I’m going to watch the convention, because it may just be great comedy. I wonder how things will be in a right to work state?  How many will actually attend in a Republican stronghold?

    seems nastycar has forgotten their roots and family values is the only reason I can think of for them to suck up to the wannabe dictator …… I pray to God that obummercare gets fully repealed becuase the dirty secret behind it is you lose freedom… if you’re beholden to them they can tell you when and what to eat or they’ll stop  your healthcare

  • Capetzi5

    I’ll give the demlibs the ability  to comprehend the fact they would be booed out of town. Talk about pissing off a bunch of God fearing, Freedom loving Rednecks.Could be hazardious to their health. :)
