Sarah Palin addresses the crowd before the start of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL Sunday, February 14, 2010.
The democratic-media complex spent two weeks building up Danica Patricks appearance but in the Sarah Palin ate up all of the crowds attention.
The Sun-Sentinel reported:
Palin-mania easily surpassed Danica-mania at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday.
While Patrick got all the headlines for the better part of two weeks, she had no stake in the Daytona 500. Palin did, and as a VIP guest for the race, she ate up all the attention.
When she arrived for the drivers meeting, Palin was immediately mobbed. She briefly chatted with Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele, shook hands with supporters and smiled big.
She took a seat up front next to Harry Connick Jr., who sang the national anthem for the race. When NASCAR president Mike Helton acknowledged her as a special guest, she got the largest ovation from the room, packed from the front to the back with drivers, team members, support personnel and onlookers.

Did the news media all get innoculations, vaccinations before attending the NASCAR event?
This is why the Democrats hate her. They think that her rock star status should be reserved for someone like Obama.
Makes my day!
I am sitting in the Ocean Center right now about to hear her speak.
They should have let Sarah do a lap or two before the race (all decked out in racing gear), big ol’ American flag attached to the car. That would have been incredible!
Not bad for a ‘dumb ingnoramus’, eh?
I have never heard of Danica Patrick.
She is speaking tonight? Awesome! Keep us posted as to what she said
Good for you!! Update and pictures would be nice.
What’s a Palin thread without pics...???????
“I have never heard of Danica Patrick.”
She’s probably as well know for her fights and swimsuit phots as her driving abilities. Here’s the “catfight” story and video http://stupidcelebrities.net/2008/07/20/danica-patrick-milka-duno-cat-fight-on-pit-road-photos-video/ .
# Sitting a few feet from Sarah Palin @DaytonaChamber dinner. Great event. Keynote address shortly. 3 minutes ago from UberTwitter
I watched the entire pre-race show and the entire race and I never heard one word about her being there. What did I miss—Is the NASCAR broadcast crew anti Palin??
Well it sure was suspicious. Maybe they didn't want to offend anyone. PC wimps.
She is the exact oppisite of Obama......The more I hear about her and from her the more I like and admire her......
