DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be a VIP guest at next month's Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway president Robin Braig says Palin will make her first appearance at NASCAR's most storied track the day before she serves as guest speaker at the city's annual chamber of commerce dinner.

Palin won't have any official role in the Daytona 500, but the former Alaska governor will be introduced at the pre-race drivers meeting along with other celebrities. Braig says track officials checked with NASCAR's political advisers before signing off on Palin's visit. Braig says the reaction was to "showcase her just as much as we would our mayor, our governor or our senators."

They should also let her also drive one of the race cars for a lap or two before the race.

It’s a darn shame that NASCAR has to have a political adviser. What is this world coming to?

I wish she was making it in a green bikini with the green flag.

She’s the cause of global warming, in my opinion.

Letterman, no doubt, will have fun with this: Ten things Sarah did at Daytona:
1. She met the Bob family- Billy and Sally
2. Bought a pack of Winstons to support Winston Cup.
3.She could see Talladegha from the stands.
4.Traded her $150,000 wardrobe for a Jeff Gordon racing suit.
5. Autographed several racing forms and one can of Copenhagen.
6. Learned three verses to "Hot, Rod, Lincoln".
7. Got Penzoil to drop the price on a case of oil.
8. Shared her favorite mooseburger receipe with tailgaters.
9.Mistook Obama's Cairo speech for a Yellow flag.
10. Promised to put a restrictor plate on the federal budget in 2013.

Cut the crap. That's the kind of language one expects to read on DU.

Would you make those comments face to face to Sarah Palin or her husband?

I’m not hitting on her, I’m saying she’s hot, so, yeah, I probably would.

This is a woman who once owned a shirt that said, “I may be broke, but I’m not flat busted.”

Roger that.

You are so right! 0bama is screwed and I’m enjoying every second of it too. I donated money to the Brown campaign & will be jumping for joy come Wednesday morning.

Lets hope the Dem fraud machine is not enough to overcome the Brown landslide.

I have been around politics too long to be that enthusiastic about that race. I’m hopeful,and it’s looking good. I’ll be jumping up and down tonight if he wins.
