Watchwoman: GOOD NEWS!!! (Pictured below) Rick Santorum’s #26 car, a Ford, qualified and will start in 41st place, driven by Tony Raines, at today’s Daytona 500 in the NASCAR Sprint Series.  The #26 car is sponsored by Front Row Motorsports.  There are 43 cars in the line up so the Santorum car will be in the last row of 2 cars with the forty-third car, last in line, behind. The faster the car, the better position in the starting line up. The pole position (first place in the starting line up) is awarded to the fastest qualifying car.  BAD NEWS. The America-Israel car driven by J. J. Yeley is not in the line up of 43 cars. The America-Israel car did not qualify. ▬ Donna Calvin

Crew members work on the car sponsored by Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum during practice for Sunday’s …

DETROIT, Michigan — Mitt Romney may have tickets to Sunday’s Daytona 500 NASCAR race in Florida, but he’ll be watching his rival’s name fly down the track.

Santorum’s presidential campaign is sponsoring Tony Raines’ car in Sunday’s race. Crew members in Florida spent Saturday preparing the car, and AP photographer Rainier Ehrhardt snapped some early pictures.

I will certainly enjoy watching this race. The Santorum sponsored car #26 is being driven by Tony Raines.
Tony has 162 starts in NASCAR,
With 3 top 10 finishes.
Today could be the day he goes to the winners circle. I’ll be cheering him on.
