The Associated Press caught this quote from Mitt Romney at his visit to the Daytona 500 today:
Romney was at Daytona last year and said he also has been to the track in New Hampshire. Does he follow the sport?
"Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans," he said. "But I have some friends who are NASCAR team owners."
