Winning Friends In Motor Racing
|Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney (L) and
NASCAR's Dan Hesse.
Since Simon Davey is widely thought to be the next big thing in
NASCAR, it is important to be "down with the good ol' boys".
In this respect we are in good company with US presidential hopeful
Mitt "Man o'the People" Romney.
We are indebted to BBC's News Quiz for the information that he
went to the Daytona 500 NASCAR race and in casual conversation with
a journo, he was asked if he follows the sport: "Not as closely
as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who
are NASCAR team owners."
Bet Bernie thinks that makes him a bit working class.
