Democratic convention offers NASCAR sponsorship

democratic nascar

For only $5, now you, too, can have your name painted on a NASCAR stock car.

The Charlotte 2012 convention committee has launched a “Powered by the American People” campaign that promises contributors of any amount that their names will be listed as sponsors on the Democratic National Convention racing car.

An email blast with the pitch, signed by reknowned NASCAR promoter H.A. “Humpy” Wheeler, went out Thursday and the promotion leads the convention’s web site.

Charlotte is the home of the NASCAR hall of fame, so it’s a natural fit. Of course, the racing league also has been the subject of fodder used against Mitt Romney in the presidential campaign.

The GOP hopeful said in February, “I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners,” and Dems immediately latched onto the statement as proof that Romney is out of touch with regular voters.

Here’s the full pitch from Wheeler:

    • Paul Brown

      Over, I so agree with you, anybody that supports it should be fined or lose the race period.

    I have been a NASCAR fan for years if they do this I will never watch another race  or buy any products that has the NASCAR brand on it I hope that we the fan ban together and boycott NASCAR and all the track owners that want to do this Keep NASCAR what it is meant to be a sport not another left wing Obama money maker

    1texascowgirl  Didn’t Oboma try to stop Chevolet from putting cars in NASCAR because he gave them a bail out?

  • Mike

    If a Nascar team accepts the sponsor from the  brain dead Dems. I hope all other sponsors leave!!!

    Now they’ve gone to far! Pretty damn arrogant of these commie bastards. They always make the southern people the butt of their jokes all the time so this is too damn much. A real southern man and woman wouldn’t vote for that damn illegal African half breed no matter how many cars he puts on the track. Wheeler is a traitor to this sport if he embraces this commie crap. Obama uses people for his own personal gain. He is always telling us what we need and vote for him and he’ll tax the evil rich people so we can have more tit to suck on. Obama is a POSFN.

    Nascar please don’t do anything for the Dems.  They are destroying this country and if you can ‘t see that open you eyes. I promise you this, if you do anything for the Dems. I will not support Nascar and I don’t miss Nascar race’s
    I even paid to drive a Nascar in Miami this spring but that kind of thing will end for me.  Let put this country
    back together, lets don’t take it down any further. We Need to get rid of this so called President. What a pour excuse
    for a president.  And a President the dosen’t allow pray in shcool, and I support Nascar because you have the guts
    to have prayer every race before the race starts and they is nothing better then the prayers you have.
    Support the Dems and you will  lose your to prayer.
