    Grover Norquist stars in a pro-immigration ad that a George Soros-funded pro-amnesty group is running this weekend at Daytona International Speedway during the Daytona 500. The National Immigration Forum ad promotes increased immigration. “Immigration is part of the secret sauce that makes America work,” Norquist says in the ad. “More people are a resource, they’re an asset; they’re not a liability.” Ali Noorani, the Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum, said that, “at the end of the day, immigration is about people, not politics. “We need to welcome immigrants and afford them the opportunity, skills and status they need...

    Sorry about this vanity going out to everyone, I wanted to put it in the Florida State group but don't have a post or reply button present. I have an extra ticket to the Daytona 500. I'm in Jacksonville and am looking for someone to go with. The person I bought the ticket for has medical problems and can't go. Here is the deal. The ticket is $130 and it's in the Oldfield section (coming out of turn 4). If you're in Jax and want to go, you can either buy the ticket, or pay gas, parking and food, drink....

    Democrats quick to use quote to accuse Romney of being out of touch By Mark Russell, Newser Staff (Newser) – Mitt Romney's attempts to show he's just a regular guy continue to go awry. At an appearance at the Daytona 500 yesterday (which was rained out for the first time in history), Romney was asked by an AP reporter if he follows NASCAR. "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners," he replied. No big surprise that Democrats were quick to use the sound bite to paint...

    Quick. Name the only major American professional sport that opens every event with not only the national anthem but also corporate prayer. And we’re not talking about a neutered, politically correct offering to some generic deity but a bold petition to our Triune God in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. If you answered “NASCAR,” you would be correct. With that distinction, it is only fitting that racing’s brightest star on the horizon is a young, unashamed believer from Knoxville, Tenn., named Trevor Bayne. This fresh-faced kid shocked the sports world last Sunday by becoming the youngest...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Sarah Palin took a break from the snow and played politician on stock car racing's biggest stage. Pretty important place on the political landscape, too. The former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor sped around Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, shaking hands and taking photos with drivers and fans alike before what she called the "all-Americana event." Palin said she was "having fun and not thinking about the politics of this," but didn't miss the chance to energize her base in one of the most critical regions of the largest swing state. "This is awesome," she...

    She sat through the pre-race driver meeting, muscled her way through pit road, took to the stage on the infield and wished drivers a safe race. She drew roars from throngs of racing fans, many shouting "We love you, Sarah!" Even some of the biggest names in NASCAR and entertainment couldn't resist her. Seven-time Daytona 500 winner Richard Petty posed for a photo, singers Tim McGraw and Harry Connick Jr. greeted her, and everybody from Army members and Marines to autograph-seeking fans and kids in wheelchairs got hugs and handshakes. Crew members on pit road even took a break from...
