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.
After sitting through the meeting, Palin could not get out the door. Fans mobbed her, asking for pictures and autographs. Her 12-person entourage, comprised of track security, a policeman, friends and spokespeople, tried to get her to the door and to her next appearance. But Palin could not help herself, and kept signing and posing for pictures.
Even when she was able to get out the door, she stopped every few feet to take pictures. One fan asked where her husband, Todd, was on Valentine's Day. Palin said he couldn't make it because he's in Alaska preparing for the Iron Dog, the world's longest snow-mobile race.
As she got moving again, Palin stopped when she saw a boy in a wheelchair to say hello and sign an autograph. As she walked ahead, she answered two questions about attending her first Daytona 500.
"This is awesome," said a slim Palin, wearing designer jeans, a smart charcoal coat and sky-high black stiletto heels. "It's an All-Americana event. A good, patriotic, wonderful event that's bringing a whole lot of people together. I think it's good for our country."

I haven’t watched a NASCAR race in a very long time. I got tired of all the left turns.
Couldn’t tell by watching the punks on FOX. I’ve watched the coverage since noon, and NOTHING HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT SARAH.
Articles like this one must just kill a liberal to have to read or for that matter, even have to know the article exists.
How does one ID designer jeans? Just curious.
As a high school guy in the late '70s (the height of Jordache and Sassoon), I could tell you, but I don't want to get banned ;-)
Something tells me Andrea Adelson of the Orlando Sentinel will be looking for a job soon.
“How does one ID designer jeans? Just curious.”
My guess is that she makes any thing she wears look like designer.
And if Palin was really wearing non-designer jeans(aka Levis, etc.), why label 'em as "designer"?
No doubt about that. Since we’re about the same height, I’d love to know where she gets her clothes. But I’m really curious how the journo knows what brand of jeans Palin was wearing.
This woman could wear a burlap sack and make it look like a designer burlap sack. That’s how they could tell.
Gentlemen. Start your engines!
