Mitt Romney's NASCAR owner friends in North Carolina are revving up their support for the Republican presidential candidate with a big fundraiser next week.
Romney will attend a private fundraiser in Charlotte on Wednesday, just days after his bus tour through the state. The hosts list on the event's invite include NASCAR CEO Brian France and President Mike Helton; Lesa France Kennedy, CEO of the International Speedway Corporation; team owners Rick Hendrick, Richard Childress and Felix Sabates; and driver Jamie McMurray. (See invite below.)
Also, team owner Jack Roush hit the trail for Romney earlier this week.
The fundraiser at the Duke Mansion costs $2,500 per person with special access to the candidate carrying a bigger price tag. Romney will attend a special reception and take photos with those who give or raise $15,000 and hold a private roundtable for those who give or raise $50,000.
