This is great. With Todd Palin’s apparent competitive nature and conservative values, I’m sure he’ll fit in quite comfortably in the garage.
Too bad Palin’s not throwing the flag.
MARTINSVILLE, VA (October 15, 2008) – Martinsville Speedway today named Todd Palin, husband of Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, an honorary race official for the TUMS QuikPak 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Sunday afternoon.
As an honorary race official, Palin will be introduced in the drivers meeting early in the day, visit with drivers and other race officials in the pits and appear in prerace activities.
